A slightly stinky, tarry nose. Dark blue, tangy fruit. Some herbal notes. Ruby on the palate and very vivacious given the age. On the palate, delicate fruit, very pure and clear. And long. Great quality here.

Musty cork and nose at first... improved with time and got much better.

Probably a bit too tired. I get a barnyard asphalt nose. Initial fruit that fades rapidly.

Sweet old burgundy with no structure left. Thiswine was full of mature red fruit and forrest aromas. Unfortunately there was little lift other than the fact that it was produced during #WWII #1943 It is still incredibly impressive. #closdesvougeot #josephdrouhin #burgundy #cotedenuits #wartimevintage #ctbucklinwine

A bit disappointing to be honest. Would like to try in a couple years and see how it changes. The deep dark red fruit with a hint of earth is there, but this does not power through the finish, which lacks acid and lift and leaves a slight emptiness. Much better with a lot of air (4+ hours).
