CLOS VOUGEOT CHATEAU DE LA TOUR VIEILLES VIGNES 2012
Les commentaires sont superflus. Toujours au top de l'appellation.
Attention, c'est bien le Vieilles Vignes", nettement supérieur au normal.
2012 Clos de Vougeot Vieilles Vignes:(from vines that were planted in 1910). Here the nose is similar to the regular cuvée from a compositional standpoint but the fruit is denser and more complex as well. The very concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent concentration as the copious dry extract both coats the palate and buffers the extremely firm tannic spine on the explosively long but impeccably well-balanced finish. This is distinctly old school in style and will require extended cellaring to arrive at its peak. I would not recommend buying this ultra-serious effort unless you have the express intention of cellaring it over the longer-term. (93-96)/2032+
