Big, bold and powerful, Clos de Vougeot needs careful handling to keep the finesse of tannins, beautifully textured mid-palate and perfect balance that are the hallmarks of Etienne's winemaking. The 2014 follows in the footsteps of the past few years' bottlings, with full on power and intensity yet a silky edge and huge length.

The 2014 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a clean and precise bouquet with lifted blackcurrant and wild strawberry, infused with violet and iris scents, all wonderfully defined. The palate is quite structured on the entry with brittle tannin, edgy and tensile with a surprisingly dense and grippy, slightly meaty finish that lingers in the mouth. There is a touch of rusticity here -- a swarthy Clos Vougeot for the vintage.
