Our Clos de Vougeot is a full, powerful wine which is sometimes a little rough. It is robust when young and needs to be given time to mature and develop finesse and elegance. Usually needs 10 years to open. When it is mature it is a generous, velvety wine, full of truffles and scents of violets.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There is more vigor adorning Etienne Grivot's Clos Vougeot 2011 compared to its peers: bright red cherries and bergamot scents, a hint of tea leaf and sous-bois. The palate is herbaceous on the entry with some stem addition, but it displays decent weight and length plus an attractive peppery aftertaste. This is a fine Clos Vougeot in what appeared to be a difficult vintage for the clos.
