CLOS VOUGEOT CHATEAU DE LA TOUR VIEILLES VIGNES 2016
Les commentaires sont superflus. Toujours au top de l'appellation.
Attention, c'est bien le Vieilles Vignes", nettement supérieur au normal.
2016 Clos de Vougeot Vieilles Vignes: (from vines that were planted in 1910). Here too there is a pretty maraschino cherry note sitting atop the slightly riper array of super-fresh plum, black cherry, cassis and violet-scented aromas. The naturally sweet and beautifully concentrated broad-shouldered flavors brim with sappy dry extract before culminating in an overtly powerful and driving finish where the intensity really builds from the mid-palate on to the explosive backend. The old vines are very much apparent and this should also age effortlessly for years. (92-95)/2031+
