The 2017 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru looks more mature in color than its peers. Red cherries and crushed strawberry feature on the nose, which lacks freshness. The palate is fleshy and quite sensual, but missing just a little depth and complexity toward the slightly coarse finish. A curious showing. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2038
