| ||Tasted by swyang on 8/31/2013: Hum... this was a first of 3 bottles and at first it was very pretty, very promising upon opening and yet as the bottle went down, it showed less and less to be rather flat at the end... it wanted to be deep and yet was shallow and somewhat disjointed. Maybe a bit too young... will try again in a few years. (787 views)|
| ||Tasted by Anonymous on 4/13/2013 & rated 94 points: Dark cherry profile with a silkiness that showed that great things are ahead of this wine. Forest floor and loam were in the background but added complexity. The purity of fruit was amazing. I kept wanting to go back to this wine. It was tough following the DRC Richebourg but it was a great example of adolescent Burgundy. (944 views)|
| ||Tasted by Frank Murray III on 1/27/2013: Drank next to an 06 Bouchard Enfant Jesus, which I preferred over this Vougeot. Bigger framed wine here, with juicy black cherry and a nice woodsy spice note in the aromatic. Denser texture than the Jesus and seemed more new world in tone. (1206 views)|
| ||Tasted by brigcampbell on 1/26/2013: Dinner with Friends (FMIII in the OC): Sorry Baby Jesus, I liked this one better! Full disclosure: all at the table except me preferred Baby Jesus. This is a bigger, bolder wine from the start and medium plus weight. California pinot dark color with dark cherry and tart raspberry aromas and flavor. Still really young, firm tannins and a drying finish. Great wine. (1241 views)|
| ||Tasted by Edclr on 8/12/2012 & rated 94 points: One awesome 02 CV....beautifully balanced, ready to drink now believe it or not. Nose jumped right out of the glass, and it took on more weight and texture as it opened. I expected this to be much more closed just because of the producer. (1262 views)|

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

Clos Vougeot Grand CruDescrittore tipico: menta e cioccolato, più precisamente after eight (spera si scriva così il nome del noto cioccolatino alla menta); ancora più precisamente, questo è un riconoscimento tipico delle sub-zone nella parte mediana e alta di Clos Vougeot, più raramente della parte bassa, al confine della RN74.
