Vinous – 93
Medium red. Complex, multifaceted nose combines cherry liqueur, raspberry, rose petal and truffley underbrush. Ripe, complex and deep, showing lovely spicy lift to the flavors of redcurrant, menthol, truffle and dried flowers. Tightens up on the very long, spicy back end, with the sexy earth and dried flower notes persisting. This is already remarkably sexy juice but will reward cellaring.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2035
Robert Parker – 93
“The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru from Méo-Camuzet offers up a classic bouquet of rich, plummy fruit mingling with incense, wood smoke and smoked duck-which has hardly evolved since it was bottled. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and sapid, with a firm chassis of tannin and a succulent, almost saline finish. While the 2012 Les Chaumes seemed a little disjointed at the same tasting, the Clos de Vougeot is clearly very nicely balanced.”
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2038
