Flight 1 (46 Notes)

  • 2022 Domaine Michel Gros Clos Vougeot Grand Maupertuis 95 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Old school but not rustic, lots of blackberry, violets here intermixed with farmyard funk and forest floor. Among the most characterful wines today.

  • 2022 Domaine Michel Gros Echezeaux Les Loachausses 96 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Echezeaux Grand Cru

    During the Grands Jour de Bourgogne walkabout tasting, no detailed notes. Michel Gros had very different wines than Gros Frere&Soeur. More traditional and in the blue fruit, sous-bois spectrum with attractive aromas as well. Traditional palates will find their wine rather here than there, but it was hard to decide which one I liked more. Both were top showings. Here the Ech was ahead of the CdV, the other way round from Gros Frere&Soeur.

  • 2022 Domaine Anne Gros Clos Vougeot Le Grand Maupertui 92 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Dark ruby. Dense blue fruit, oak spices, compact mouth feel. Modern, polished, well-crafted tannins. This wine often gets high scores, but in all of my encounters I found it aromatically a little foursquare. Not much going on beyond blue fruit.

  • 2022 Domaine Jean Féry & fils Vougeot 1er Cru Les Cras 92 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vougeot 1er Cru

    Medium-light garnet. The nose is very much in the red fruit spectrum with earthy elements. Lovely, but expensive for a 1er Cru.

  • 2022 Faiveley Clos Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Quite a bit of oak to work through in the nose, but soft and subtle. The texture here is very nice and from the 2021 I recently had, it is also aromatically an interesting wine with lots of sous-bois once it reaches the drinking window.

  • 2022 Domaine R. DuBois & Fils Clos Vougeot 89 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Tannins here are a little bit rough, a question mark today if they’ve got this right. Aromas are very much in the earthy, brown color spectrum, old school.

  • 2022 Dufouleur Freres Clos Vougeot Le Grand Maupertui 90 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    From an owned plot in Grand Maupertui. Nose with lots of dark fruit, very primary, fine oak, owner mentioned that he likes to drink his wines young. Hmm, I would definitely wait until there are more aromas here. 90-91

  • 2022 Domaine d'Eugénie Clos Vougeot 92 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    For those who don’t know the story here: After the untimely demise of René Engel who made one of the best Clos Vougeot (the few remaining bottles of his era trade well into the four digits), Francois Pinault, owner of Chateau Latour, bought this estate and renamed it Domaine d’Eugenie. What followed was a disaster, the wines were unrecognizable. Instead of fragrant red fruit, elegant wines, you had dark fruit, extracted, oaked “Bordeaux made in Burgundy”. The Pinot community was shocked. They have recently dialed back on their approach and recent wines are better. I have to admit that I never had an Eugenie wine that was close to what René Engel did but at least the direction of travel is now better. I had a good 2013 Clos Vougeot at the Paris Ficofi event, so that gives me hope. The 2022 on display today has 80% whole cluster and two thirds new oak. When I taste the wine, I can only find compressed dark fruit today, no stemmy notes. The tannins are of good quality. Similar to the Anne Gros wine in style. Will this become fragrant and elegant once mature? Given the price I would I have some trepidation.

  • 2022 Joseph Drouhin Clos Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    This wine had had extremely nice texture, soft, almost succulent for a Clos Vougeot. The aromas are still primary though, so I would not open this despite its textural appeal.

  • 2022 Domaine d'Ardhuy Clos Vougeot 90 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Very primary, hard to assess, not much going on beyond dark and red fruit, almost a little simple. Should be better given the terrific plot in Petit Maupertui.

  • 2022 Domaine Bertagna Clos Vougeot 90 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Another Domaine that makes wines with dark fruit and silky tannins but they need to work on the aromatics. Very foursquare.

  • 2022 Maison Albert Bichot Clos Vougeot Domaine du Clos Frantin 93 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Lighter and more airy style, attractive, not as austere as some of the others. Positive surprise of an otherwise inconsistent producer.

  • 2022 René Bouvier Clos Vougeot 92 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    The wine was a touch thin for a Grand Cru but there are a lot of attractive aromas here around sous bois, red fruit and spice box.

  • 2022 Jean-Pierre Guyon Clos Vougeot 92 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Nose of red current and cassis, herbs de Provence. Ripe but not overripe, silky structure but not overly aromatic. Now the current price of this Domaine makes you scratch your head especially since only a few years back this used to be a laggard both in quality and price. Now all of a sudden the price is way up and the quality better, not nearly that much better like in the Arnoux-Lachaux or Comte Liger-Belair transformation, so at this price point this is not something to purchase.

  • 2021 Arnaud Chopin & Fils Clos Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    An off the radar producer that recovered its plot from Négoce contracts and surprised today with a very fragrant 2021 wine. Great nose of forest floor, dark and red fruit. Polished.

  • 2022 Arnaud Chopin & Fils Clos Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Like the fragrant and outstanding 2021, the 2022 was cut from a similar cloth with more fruit density but the same elegant mouthfeel. I will likely surpass the 2021 when mature. 94+

  • 2022 Domaine Château De La Tour Clos Vougeot 95 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    The largest owner in Clos Vougeot which gives it the advantage to play with more choice in the final assemblage. They used to make quite tannic wines bordering rustic. Recent vintages I had were much better though, so I put the producer back onto my radar and purchase list. The sunny 2022 played into their hand. Complex nose of dark berries with spices, cherry, earthy elements, licorice. Ca. 50% whole cluster. Very complete start to finish. Reasonably priced and easy to source due to its, in terms of Burgundy, large production.

  • 2022 Domaine Château De La Tour Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes 96 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    80% whole cluster in this cuvée. Deep and rich with intriguing aromatics around licorice, underbrush, meat and dark fruit. One of the best wines today.

  • 2022 Domaine du Château de Marsannay Clos Vougeot 89 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Nose dominated by red fruit and sweet spices. Soft and polished, but a little simple. Not really a good QPR here.

  • 2022 Château Philippe-le-Hardi Clos Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    A worthy follow up from the 2020 tasted the night before. Dense wine with tightly woven structure and already lots of aromas with herbs, cassis, wet forest floor lurking below.

  • 2020 Château Philippe-le-Hardi Clos Vougeot 95 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    The estate was purchased by Credit Agricole in 1997. This 2020 vintage was shown the evening before during the very well organized Grand Maison Grand Cru event. One of the discoveries of the evening. The wine showed very expressive aromas of cured meat, sweet spices, sous-bois and whole cluster notes.

  • 2021 Domaine Tortochot Clos Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    The lighter vintage created a very good wine here. Already expressive and attractive to drink with some aeration, very good freshness. They got this vintage right. The most approachable wine, but I would still give this a 3-4 more years in bottle

  • 2022 Domaine Tortochot Clos Vougeot 93 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    25% whole cluster. Dense and structured, one that will need cellar time. Earthy aromas lurking below.

  • 2016 Domaine Tortochot Clos Vougeot 89 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Very ripe wine with some pruney notes. A second bottle was a little more balanced, but still, I liked this the least of the three due to its very ripe character. I clearly preferred the 2021 and 2022 today.

  • 2022 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Clos Vougeot 97 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    . In terms of price and prestige in Clos Vougeot, this producer is only topped by Madame Leroy and the late René Engel. Mugneret-Gibourg has become a cult wine with a loyal following among connoisseurs. I remember liking the wines immediately after exploring this producer with Divo in 2007, back then at moderate prices - tempi passati! Luckily not only the prestige but also the quality here is top drawer. The 2022 was the most complete wine of the line-up combining wonderful aromatics with red fruits and violets, sous-bois, gentle oak. It eclipsed the also very good Echezeaux showed next to it. For those with deep pockets, this is your wine, if you can find it…

  • 2022 Domaine Michel Noëllat Clos Vougeot 92 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Lighter than most wines and a little compressed in structure but there is solid red fruit. Balanced, elegant, would need some more depth.

  • 2022 Domaine Jean Grivot Clos Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    A lighter style here with elegant raspberry notes and baking spices. A beautiful showing, albeit and expensive choice given the price is lifted here by the reputational strength of this producer.

  • 2022 Pascale Rion Delhautal Clos Vougeot 90 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    The 2022 was also lighter than most wines, soft and almost too easy going for a Grand Cru. May be bottle age will add some aromatics similar to the 2021, which btw showed better today. 90pts for now.

  • 2021 Pascale Rion Delhautal Clos Vougeot 93 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    First time I see this producer and rare today, I could not find any info neither online nor in Winesearcher. At least the wines were lovely, lighter renditions of this Vineyard. I referred the 2021 here for its fragrant aromatics with red fruit with farmyard notes underneath.

  • 2022 Domaine Armelle et Bernard Rion Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes 91 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Very primary still, dark fruit, closed, finishes with ripe tannins. Hard to assess at this closed stage.

  • 2022 Domaine Henri Rebourseau Clos Vougeot 95 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Very good wine here, among the top showings. Complex aromas around dark cherry and some farmyard funk.

  • 2022 Gérard Raphet Clos Vougeot 89 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    A producer that gets shunned my most reviewers, hard to find ratings on it. The base cuvée was a bit hard work today, quite tannic and unyielding, quite some distance to the excellent VV.

  • 2022 Gérard Raphet Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    A producer that gets shunned my most reviewers, hard to find ratings on it. A big step up from the base cuvée, the VV showed wonderfully. Much softer palate, wonderful aroma. A discovery. 94+

  • 2022 Domaine Jacques Prieur Clos Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Beautiful dark fruit on the first swirl. A big surprise as this is not really a name for haute couture in Burgundy. I also like the density and tannin management, well crafted.

  • 2022 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Clos Vougeot 95 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Usually known for tannic style, especially in its Corton, that need a long time, today we had a surprisingly succulent and fruity wine here with soft tannins. The wines usually add a lot in complexity with age, so I think we have a winner here as well.

  • 2022 Thibault Liger-Belair Clos Vougeot 95 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    50% whole cluster, soft and charming, among the top wines today. Made in a modern way but not at the expense of aroma. One that will please novices and connoisseurs alike.

  • 2022 Domaine Laurent Pere et Fils Clos Vougeot La Plante L'Abbe Vieilles Vignes "Sui generis" 95 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    First time I see this bottle and interestingly the wine that may take the crown for the best aromas today. Dark fruit, herbs, farmyard, smoke, lots going on. Medium bodied palate. 95-96

  • 2022 Louis Latour Clos Vougeot 92 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Another Maison that is associated with more mass market wines. Their wine showed nicely today with attractive blue fruit. The tannins were a touch dry on the finish and need some time. Not bad overall but given the price point vs. the prestige of this Négoce, not one I would buy.

  • 2022 Domaine Nicole Lamarche Clos Vougeot 91 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    The daughter of Francois Lamarche is now running the show here. The domaine has a mixed record. For the fact that they own some of the best vineyards in Vosne, including La Grande Rue that lies in-between DRC’s RC and LT they should make wines and command prices like Comte Liger Belair does after re-taking the helm there. Fact is they don’t and when you taste their wines you know why. Not bad stuff, but too little to write home about. The 2022 Clos Vougeot was pleasant, light bodied, some raspberry, all a bit unassuming for a Grand Cru in a top vintage though.

  • 2022 Louis Jadot Clos Vougeot 89 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Holy cow, true to form, this is immensely structured I don’t know when this will be ready to drink. For me it looks like they have overdone it on the tannins as unfortunately all too often in this Maison. If you have this, do not open before 2035. 88-90

  • 2022 Jean-Marc Millot Clos Vougeot Grand Maupertuis 93 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    New Label design. I liked the old one better. I don’t know what it is with Burgundy vignerons, they are so trigger happy to update their label, especially when a new generation takes helm. Look at Armand Rousseau’s Chambertin, Lafite Rothschild, DRC, Chave Hermitage. Label is brand and brand is label. Don’t touch it! Their 2022 Clos Vougeot was one of the lighter wines today with lovely raspberry and underbrush aromas.

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    50% whole cluster. A very aromatic wine with cranberries, sweet oak, spices and mint. A lot to like here, one of the best in the lower part of the appellation. 94+

  • 2021 Domaine de la Vougeraie Vougeot Clos du Prieuré Blanc 92 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vougeot

    In the afternoon at the Quatour en Harmonie pavilion Domaine de La Vougeraie showed two Vougeot white wines that I wanted to mention here, as they are a typical Burgundy odd ball and thus something to confuse everyone in your next blind tasting. Expressive nose with lemon curd and match stick, good ripeness married with freshness. Like a Chassagne in style, good QPR.

  • 2021 Domaine de la Vougeraie Vougeot 1er Cru Clos Blanc de Vougeot 94 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vougeot 1er Cru

    Lovely gun flint nose here, fresh and zesty, a touch more volume than the already good village. Very good white at a relatively attractive price and a valid alternative for Meursault or Chassagne. Price point: 100 CHF.
