The 2019 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru opens in the glass with aromas of wild berries, plums, loamy soil, incense and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it’s rich and concentrated, built around a chassis of fine, powdery tannins and lively acids. Like so many of the region’s more inherently structured sites this year, it’s unusually elegant and seductive as a barrel sample.
TASTING NOTE: Complex bouquet of red and black berries with spicy and slightly oaky notes. Dazzling elegance on the palate, with a perfect blend of finesse and raciness. Very good ageing potential.
FOOD/WINE PAIRING: Red meat dishes, roasted or in sauce, game birds, medium-flavoured cheese.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: Between 17C to 18C
AGEING POTENTIAL: 10 years and more
HARVEST: manual, in small cases of 13 kg. Careful manual sorting of each grape.
VINIFICATION: Following total or partial destemming on the vintage, fermentation in small containers, gentle pressing ensure optimal vinification. Depending on the profile of the vintage, vatting lasts 18 to 21 days.
MATURING: 12 to 14 months in French oak, with 45 to 60% new oak.
AGEING: The cellars located in the Bastions of the ancient Ch?teau de Beaune offer ideal ambient conditions. Thanks to their natural hygrometry and constant temperatures, the Grands Crus enjoy from their first youth an environment that is perfectly adapted to tranquil ageing.
