Tasting notes

27/01/2011

Les Clos is always the most structured and powerful of the grands crus, but this is also elegant, with refreshing fruit and acidity, while retaining a firm structured backbone. Winemaker Denis de la Bourdonnaye has reduced the amount of oak ageing for his grands crus, and the benefit is there to be tasted in the glass, with some refined elegance. Drink 2014-2018. (18 points)
