Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 88.4 pts. and median of 88 pts. in 14 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Milos on 2/2/2015: Sweet red fruit with leather and smoke on the nose; palate balance with ripe tannins almost resolved and decent finish that ends with a nice fruit note. (444 views)
 Tasted by Atreyu on 3/30/2014 & rated 86 points: from half bottle. Very little development comared to last half bottle in 2009. Some tobacco and faint truffles. Very extracted and not at all charming. It is possible that it could open up at some point but I doubt it (1268 views)
 Tasted by lesmonks on 9/17/2013 & rated 86 points: A but tight and awkward. Tannins were not fully integrated. Will try another in 5 years, or decant for a few hours. (1601 views)
 Tasted by cos82 on 4/8/2013 & rated 89 points: Expected better on the palate. Nice dark cherry red. Nice nose of cherry, plum and cassis. Palate lacking fruit. Some plum with charcoal, earth and and a tad of licorice. A heavy wine that calls out for more time, but that may not matter. (1794 views)
 Tasted by dpolivy on 1/7/2013 & rated 88 points: DRC Tasting Group (Cafe Veloce): Tasted blind. Dark, subdued nose. A bit green. Light bodied, with drying tannins. It did open up a little with air; maybe it just needs more time? (1262 views)
 Tasted by Pinotnut on 4/26/2012 & rated 87 points: Very closed and tight...not sure if this is ever going to blossom. Give it another year and see where it is. (2634 views)
 Tasted by fizz on 1/19/2012 & rated 88 points: Although it had visions of red and black fruit and hits of spice, the overall impression was of a wine that lacked vitality and essence. It was enjoyable but needed some food to quell the astringency. (2043 views)
 Tasted by KellyW on 1/29/2011 & rated 92 points: A very pleasant Vougeot with good fruit density and fine tannins. (2263 views)
 Tasted by winenuts on 9/20/2010 & rated 90 points: Open and pore into a burgundy glass, it is close and very disappoint, no nose and rough, give nothing, however when I have my 2nd glass after one hour, it improves a lot, very good balance, the nose, after taste are arrived, it changes to a typical burgundy. I think this one need to be stored for another two the three years or decant one hour before drinking. Can not say great but still good. (2314 views)
 Tasted by Pacalet on 5/7/2010 & rated 86 points: Still rather close, but able to open up after an hour, with dark blackcurrant, menthol and herbal. Integrated tannins and a pretty big wine. Lots of brute but no finesse. (2219 views)
 Tasted by Atreyu on 2/22/2009: totally closed. Black and tannic like a young hermitage. High acidity. Short finish with very little fruit and showing no real development. This was really hard work and potential was impossible to judge. But I won't be opening any more of my halves for 10 years or so. (2341 views)
 Tasted by CamWheeler on 5/16/2007 & rated 90 points: Very closed and reticent on the nose with some cherry and spices peeking through. The tannins were also at the forefront of the huge palate on this wine, but the underlying fruit seemed deeper and the structure as a whole better as well. Very good length. More approachable than the Faiveley, but still needs another 10 years to show its potential I think. (2629 views)
 Tasted by bevort on 1/24/2007: Im not gonna touch my remaining bottles for the next 3-5 years. Seems to be going through a very closed phase. Even after 3 1/2 hours of decanting its giving very little. Colour is very pure and beautiful and it definately seems like there is something down there but its just not showing today. /steen (3038 views)

Burgundy-Report (3/1/2005)
(Grivot Jean Clos de Vougeot) Very deep colour - looks like Bordeaux. The nose starts with plenty black and red fruit-skin notes but slowly becomes less giving and settles-down to an interesting spice note redolent of cumin. The palate is very polished and concentrated with mouth-wrapping velvet tannin that's well matched to sweet black-shaded fruit and acidity that you hardly notice. The finish, like the fruit, is quite primary and of good length. Not an austere CV and easily drinkable but one that could do with at least another 5-7 years before assessing. Very fine.

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.

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 Cru

Descrittore 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.
