(blended from 3 separate lieux-dits, two near the bottom and one near the top). A distinctly earthy and exceptionally fresh nose speaks of the pure essence of various red berries and a whiff of underbrush. There is both excellent density and richness to the imposingly scaled flavors that culminate in a delineated, sappy and markedly austere yet refreshing finale. This is a classically styled Clos that will take its sweet time maturing. Drinking range: 2036 - Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2021)

Aromas of cherries, wild berries, incense and loamy soil, framed by a deft touch of spicy new oak, introduce the 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, rich and layered wine that's elegantly muscular, with terrific depth and concentration. Long and penetrating, this is a fine longer-haul proposition from Faiveley. Rating: 93-95 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
Much more massive of course than the Echezeaux which preceded it. There are no stems retained, though Jérôme Flous thinks he might like to try some in Clos Vougeot. A reductive wood note is slightly interfering with the purity of the nose. Certainly very sweet fruit on the palate, on the chunky side, but that’s fine for a young Clos Vougeot.

Barrel sample. Firm and savoury and refreshing (at last!). Good balance and correct. Notably appetising with depth and character. A cool draught with real interest and length. Drinking range: 2026 - 2043 Rating: 17.5/20 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Dec 2020)
