Lucien Le Moine Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2012

"Black cherry and blackberry compote flavors hold court in this fruit-filled red, gaining complexity from graphite and chalk notes. Firm and sinewy on the finish, where the dense tannins reign. All the components are there, but this needs time." 

Lucien Le Moine Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2012

The largest Grand Cru in the Côte-de-Nuits, at 125 acres, Clos de Vougeot possesses differing soil structures and expositions and, notably, a large number of growers. The top of the vineyard features soils of pebbly limestone, which become marl further down the slope, and finally more alluival at the 23 bottom. Notoriously variable, from the best producers Clos de Vougeot produces generous, complex wines that can stand alongside any Grand Cru Burgundies.

This is very ripe, indeed to the point where the cassis, warm earth and softly floral-scented aromas exhibit hints of mocha. In much the same fashion as the Clos St. Denis there is a relatively sleek mouth feel to the solidly intense and muscular larger-scaled flavors that possess a lovely sense of harmony and excellent complexity on the lingering finish that is a bit less youthfully austere than usual.”

"Black cherry and blackberry compote flavors hold court in this fruit-filled red, gaining complexity from lk notes. Firm and sinewy on the finish, where the dense tannins reign. All the graphite and chacomponents are there, but this needs time."  

“Good dark red. Sexy dark berries and musky black cherry on the nose. Juicy and imploded on the palate. with its dark berry and smoke flavors communicating a rather cool character and little in the way of easy sweetness. Showing a bit less energy in the early going than the Clos Saint-Denis. Saouma says the fatness comes from the top of the Clos, and the coolness from the bottom. One of the most austere of these 2016s today; am I underrating this wine’s complexity?”
