The Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018 has a deep ruby colour with aromas of cloves, mocha and violets. A full mouth with round tannins, there is a nice freshness on the finish and notes of liquorice and blackcurrant.
A rich, oaky offering, the 2017 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru bursts from the glass with aromas of incense, toasty new wood and earthy dark fruits. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, chewy and firm, seemingly somewhat overly marked by its oak tannins, though it may come around with further élevage.
Aromas of ripe cherries, cassis, grilled meats, caramelized citrus rind and loamy soil introduce the 2016 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru, a full-bodied, broad-shouldered wine with a rich core of concentrated fruit, chewy structuring tannins and tangy balancing acids. This is a powerful, intense Clos Vougeot that has the substance to support sustained time in bottle.
The Clos Vougeot Grand Cru has a tight wound floral bouquet with rose petals and crushed strawberry at first, with vanilla emanating from the oak as it begins to open. The palate is medium bodied with soft tannins, very fleshy and perhaps just too candied in the mouth. This feels lactic, quite chocolaty, and that detracts from the terroir expression

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
