This has a wonderfully succulent nose. Soft red fruit, that wonderful classy burg depth. On the palate great balance and super fresh for its age. Nice balance at the middle and a good finish. The front is the thing here and the rest is a bit more prosaic s as often is the way with Clos Vougeot, but this is a lovely wine in great shape. — 3 days ago
Gave this 90 min of air in a decanter before touching it. Dark tawny and mostly translucent. Exciting nose. Notes of sour cherries, rhubarb, slate stone, some menthol and iron, old desk wood, spice and a touch of kirsch. Dusty fruit in the mouth with a long finish. Can probably benefit from a bit more age to develop more complexity. Plenty of life in front of it and pretty dynamic tonight. — 2 days ago
Nose has wet red/black currants, ripe-tart cherry, dry autumn leaves and dry soil.
Palate has ripe cherry, ripe plum, blackberry and red currant. Not much complexity at this time, but showing bold acidity and medium tannins.
I think still quite youthful, future bottles could be 2024+, hoping for improvement. I've generally been happy on the progress of many '14 Burg's, this seems more youthfully austere in its development. — 14 days ago
Kicked off very closed and felt like an off bottle for the first 10-15mins. But with food and air, the fruit really started to show itself and the palate went brim brooding dark damp fruit to dark cherries and ripe raspberries. Had some earthy notes and mushroom-y notes as well. A bit relieved that the wine finally came around. — 13 days ago
Really enjoyed this. Actually was better the second day. Rich fruit, just enough acidity. — 20 days ago
