Clos Vougeot Petit Maupertuis Grand Cru – Vinous – 92-95 Points
Healthy dark red. Sexy aromas of spices, dried flowers, smoky minerality, iron, game and earth. Like liquid velvet in the mouth; voluptuous but not heavy thanks to the lift provided by the stems. Finishes with slowly building length and a perfumed note of licorice pastille. The tannins are substantial but arrive late. This complex, soil-driven Clos Vougeot offers outstanding potential.
