GREAT VINTAGE, 12 YEARS OLD AND HAVE JUST NOW ENTERED PRIME WINDOW OF DRINK ABILITY....DRINK NOW OR CELLAR FOR MANY YEARS!

"Saturated ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, bitter chocolate and pungent spices. Offers a penetrating, sappy kirsch flavor on the palate, in a rather dense, powerful style. This is powerful without coming across as heavy. Finishes very long and spicy, with terrific freshness." (VM)

"Deep ruby. A strongly reduced nose gives up little but the well-muscled flavors are big, robust and very powerful and possess the classic young Clos de Vougeot youthful austerity. This is very primary and awkward yet the quality of the raw material is clear and this should reward 10 to 15 years of cellar time." (BH)
