Other Reviews....
Initially there is a touch of what the Burgundians call bourgeon de cassis (cassis blossom) though aggressive swirling eventually reveals pretty, even airy, aromas display notes of red and dark currant, ample earth and underbrush nuances plus hints of spice and wood. The sleek, delicious and intense medium weight plus flavors possess a caressing but powerful palate impression while exhibiting outstanding length on the youthfully austere and very firm finale. Drink 2036+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is also very promising, mingling aromas of cherries, earthy wild berries, rose petals and spices in an incipiently complex mélange. Full-bodied, rich and layered, it's elegantly muscular and built for the long haul, its enveloping core of fruit largely concealing serious reserves of fine, powdery tannins.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)

There are just eight barrels instead of the usual 13 barrels of the 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru this year. Matured in around 50% new oak, it has a hard job following the superlative Malconsorts, but does its best with blackberry, wild hedgerow and light iodine aromas. The palate is succulent on the entry, and quite effervescent, with a fine bead of acidity, but maybe this is just a little too exotic toward the finish. It needs to show more refinement once in bottle. Drink 2023 - 2038.

8.5 barrels instead of 13. Dense, black purple here, nose suggests depth power and quality without detail. This is really fine on the palate with a starburst of energy, not too ripe at all with some raspberry essence taking the lead. Tannins and acidity in perfect balance, properly persistent. Very fine this year!
