The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a lifted bouquet that needs to shake off some reduction but eventually offers black cherry, burnt toast, black olive and subtle pencil box aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, featuring ripe black and red fruit laced with white pepper and sage. Harmonious and well balanced, sporting admirable weight toward the finish and a long peppery aftertaste. Excellent. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
