Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru
The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is soft, fruity and forward, in other words quite accessible for this site, where wines tend to be a bit hard in the early going. Crushed rose petal, spice, mint and blood orange give the 2018 lovely aromatic dimension to play off a core of bright red berry fruit. The 2018 will be easy to enjoy with minimal cellaring for a Grand Cru Burgundy. If opened young, it needs a bit of air for a touch of reduction to blow off.
