2019 Domaine de la Vougeraie Charmes-Chambertin Les Mazoyeres Grand Cru
A pungent nose is composed mostly of wood toast and reduction. Otherwise there is excellent precision to the rich, intense and surprisingly mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that are shaped by firm but ripe tannins and outstanding length on the linear, austere and powerful finish. This beautifully complex and quite firmly structured effort possesses plenty of muscle and very fine development potential. Drink 2039+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
From 104-year-old vines that are still productive, the 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Les Mazoyères Grand Cru includes 100% whole bunches. It might well possess my pick of the bouquets from Vougeraie, offering vibrant red berry fruit infused with lovely incense and blood orange scents. The harmonious palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, well-judged acidity and beautiful balance. Very persistent in the mouth. This is an excellent Charmes-Chambertin. Drink 2024 - 2048.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Ancient vines which are still in great condition, so the fruit can take 100% whole bunch vinification. Glowing mid purple. The nose is just sensational, sweetly refined yet precisely defined. The floral side of cherry. So pretty, yet with depth as well, gorgeous weight to this, the roses and raspberries return behind. Marvellous!
