Robert Parker – 86
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has an animated, quite oaky bouquet that veers towards black fruit rather than red. It does not quite “flow” like others, a bit green perhaps. The palate is actually better with succulent tannin, a keen line of acidity, though it tapers in and feels raw on the finish. It is a disappointing wine from Jadot and this is the second time that I have tasted it blind. Tasted September 2016.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2021
