Wine Profile

tasting notes

"The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from Drouhin’s two parcels, one occupying a better location than the other. It has a fine, well-defined bouquet, quite pointed at first with citrus peel infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a soft, supple opening. There is a sense of lushness here, imbued with fine acidity and there is a crescendo toward the wild strawberry-driven, creamy finish. Very fine." - Robert Parker

winemaker notes

"The ruby red color is magnificent and takes on a deeper hue with age. The aromas are intense and evoke raspberry and wild cherry, becoming more complex with age: undergrowth, truffle, candied fruit. A sublime structure, with refined tannins. It is a perfect example of this ideal of elegance according to Drouhin. Are markable balance and a lingering persistence of flavors on the palate. It is a wine that always leaves the greatest impression."
