The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a pastille-like bouquet with red cherries, kirsch and orange sorbet aromas, pretty if just missing a little complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, good substance and grip, fanning out gently towards the mineral-driven finish with a dash of spice on the aftertaste. This Clos de Vougeot improves with aeration and ends up being rather lovely. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.
