"This too is very toasty though the expressive nose of earthy red berry fruit and sauvage scents is much less spicy. The round and surprisingly supple middle weight flavors are supported by slightly riper tannins but even so there is a very mild edge to the slightly austere finish. This is clearly better than the Ech but not at the same level as it usually is."
The 2014 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is more expressive and open on the nose compared to the Echézeaux with dark cherries, blueberry and blackcurrant scents that are succinct and detailed. There is more fruité here at the moment and well defined. The palate is knitted together nicely by the veneer of new oak, but underneath is plenty of mineral-rich, black fruit. This is a structured Clos Vougeot, just a tad introspective but very nicely focused with an elegant, quite sustained finish. This is one of the best Clos de Vougeot that I came across during my tastings.
