Clos Vougeot Jacques Prieur 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

91-94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "This is also notably floral though the wood and menthol elements are more conspicuous and fight somewhat with the brooding dark currant and earth scents. There is good power and muscle to the middle weight plus flavors that possess a highly attractive mouth feel before concluding in a wonderfully complex, intense and unusually refined finish thanks mainly to the relatively fine-grained tannins. This is really a very good effort, indeed I would describe it as a Clos de Vougeot of refinement though make no mistake, it should be more than capable of rewarding extended cellaring." Issue# 62, 04/16 91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, picked on September 23 from the parcel in the middle of the vineyard, has a nicely defined, focused bouquet with dark berry fruit tinged with rose petals and a touch of mint. The 50% new oak is nicely integrated on the palate, well balanced and focused with good substance towards what is, at the moment, a structured and conservative finish. Give this 2-3 years." Issue# 222, 12/15 90-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media: "Bright, dark red. Lovely pure cherry aroma lifted by spices and flowers. Suave and fine-grained, conveying excellent intensity and a restrained sweetness to the black cherry and licorice flavors. Finishes with a strong dusting of tannins and lovely lift. This wine from clay soil has a tendency to be brutal in the early going, notes Nadine Gublin, but this rather classic Clos Vougeot avoids hardness." 01/16
