Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

2/5/2016 - drjb Likes this wine: 93 points

Dinner at Mooloolaba. Deep cherry colour. Nose of red cherry, plums, redcurrant with touches of earth and Asian spice. Quite lifted and complex. Palate medium weight with a pervasive earthiness behind the red fruits. Excellent grip and finish with plenty of length and interest. A lovely mature Vougeot.

Bought at auction. 13.5% abv. Medium ruby color. Clear. Great nose of dark red fruits, some vanilla. Earthy, minerals. Very balanced. Long finish. This is drinking great and could still go for a while. Best Rene Engel I have had yet. YES! I would purchase this again.

Our Turn to Say Thanks to Some Generous Friends (Los Olivos, CA): Slow ox'ed for about four hours. A story of contrasts, and in many ways a bit of an oddity.. The powerful funk on the nose occasionally blew off, only to reemerge. The palate belied the nose, austere but full bodied, with loads of mushroom, soy and tea notes. Surprising levels of acidity, in contrast to the limited fruit. Medium finish.

A day two update: the funk has totally blown off, and the wine is much rounder and balanced. Some more fruit as well, still cranberries but now nicely savory, though hardly sweet. Bumping up a point to 92. Thank you Philippe!

A 'Les brulées' comme il faut; very distinguished, not convincing by power but by purity, persistance and balance. also lovely colour and a very elegant bouquet with an earthy touch.

Light garnet in color. Nose offers up ripe small red fruits, spice, leather,game and undergrowth. Delicious palate with ripe fruit and lovely balance of silky tannins and cleansing mineral acidity. Super maturing GC.

agree with Paul's note. 2000s are drinking well now. Red fruit, very open, round and flowery expression of Pinot. Thought of St Vivant.

Lunch at Odette (Odette, National Gallery, Singapore): I enjoyed this. It had a wonderful nose, just lightly floral, with nice mineral notes dancing around clear tones of sweet dark cherries and fresh berries touched with forestry earth and just the lightest dusting of spice. The palate was a little on the leaner, more austere side, but still had a decent fullness to it, with cool, clear dark cherry and berry flavours laced with more of those subtle spice and mineral notes. Masculine in structure, like many Engel wines, but with a nicely elegant feel that made it a joy to drink. Good now.

Shared with friends at IW&FS; dinner in Cape Town. Magnum bottle gave us more years in this bottle. Lovely soft and ripe fruit flavours, no sign of being past its prime.

8th of 12, good cork and level, pnp, previous notes fine or better - deepish red, brown rim; enthralling bouquet, bramble, strawberry, some game and spice; medium full bodied, very long and persistent, fine fruit not necessarily a feature of this vintage, wonderful structure, still got drive, ready but no rush. Very fine (18.5/20).

Tasted blind against the Groffier Amoureuses 1997. Color is dark and mature red. Thin watery edge. The nose gives med same kind of nose as the Amoureuses. Tomato juice and fresh herbs. Oh god this is good. And so expressive on the nose! It jumps put of the glass to catch you unaware. And the palate is even another step up from the Groffier. The wildest taste of bouncing and kicking fruit but still like velvet on the tongue. The old "fist in a velvet glove" comes to mind here. And balanced like an otherworldly creation... This is immense!

Light garnet/ruby color. Nose offers up a melange of small ripe red fruits, spice, undergrowth, flowers. Absolutely superb palate, ripe fruit with silky tannins balanced by great mineral acidity. Persistent finish. A magic GC Burg.

At first the wine appeared a little thin and too easy. however the palate grew with more time in glass. Lovely mature VR nose with floral overtones, lots of spices and slight undergrowth. Palate with decent energy and stuffings after an hour, medium plus finish. A very lovely Grands Ech and better not to wait.

Medium red ruby in color with ever-so-slight clearing at the edges. Forward, attractive & aromatic nose of mature & developed, complex ripe fruit aromas of dark cherries, strawberries & red currants with exotic floral & spice overtones of sandalwood, cloves & cinnamon, coffee grounds, earthy, loam, olives, mushrooms, dried herbs, smoky, some minerals and hints of sous-bois in the background. Medium bodied with a good concentration of silky & elegant textured, developed & mature, complex ripe red fruits flavors of cherries, strawberries & plums with spices, coffee, minerals, herbs & a touch of vanilla . Long lingering smooth finish. Close to its peak of development as it is quite enjoyable at present but should hold at this plateau for several more years.

I ordered the 2004 off the list at a restaurant in Germany but it had been finished so they brought the 2000. Transparent and limpid in the glass it soars with an intoxicating blend of coffee, spice and red fruit. High toned, with a touch of tannin running down the spine, there, is that lovely, exuberant, forthright Vosne spice. Initially it's a very well balanced wine, not forced but true to the vineyard and the vintage but it is by no means a great wine (the vintage, vineyard and increasingly the volatility, which with time dominates both the nose and palate but ultimately gives way to a cooler more restrained finish, put paid to this), but it is very enjoyable especially if drunk quickly after opening or perhaps kept longer in the cellar. The nose fleetingly flirts with greatness.

Mid shoulder and the cork disintegrates. Brown and cloudy. Strawberry jam. Ripe and good intensity for more than an hour. Slight stink of compost. Lovely rich feeling. An excellent bottle!

Drinking spectacular right now. Beuatiful nose with pure cherry fruit. The bouquet is great and the palate even better. Power with weightless lift. Wine doesn't have to be much betteer than this. Wine of the year so far.
