Classic sweet blueberry and velvet characters and texture of Clos de Vougeot, sourced from the best part of the vineyard above the Clos itself. Strikingly deep bright purple red colour, with aromas of spiced dark cherries, hints of earth, and a rich and ripe textured palate balanced by the use of 50% lightly toasted oak; the layered and balanced smoky fruit flavours and fine tannin texture shows plenty of promise for the future.
