2011 Domaine Jean Grivot Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Cote de Nuits
Clos de Vougeot is a full, powerful wine. It is robust when young and needs to be given time to mature and develop finesse and elegance. The wine usually needs 10 years to open. When it is mature it is a generous, velvety wine, full of truffles and scents of violets.
Burghound - "There is enough wood to notice though it doesn't fight with the mostly red berry fruit, spice and pungent earth aromas. There is ample size, weight, power, muscle and concentration to the big-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract that does a fine job of buffering the very firm but not hard tannic spine on the hugely long finish. Moreover, there is excellent depth and overall, this is a big but not massive example that displays excellent balance and harmony."
Antonio Galloni - "Medium red. Musky aromas of ripe cherry and fresh herbs; the closest to liqueur-like of these 2011s. Silky on entry, then dense, intense and light on its feet in the middle palate, conveying an impression of energy and lift. Broad, serious wine with the stuffing to support its firm tannic spine. This has the structure for a graceful evolution in bottle."
