Very backward and closed on the palate even tough today with major tongue-dusting tannins. Currently dominated by its powerful structure but the black fruit herbal and mint flavors show superb sweetness. This may need a good decade of bottle aging.

The saturated medium-to-dark ruby-colored 1998 Clos de Vougeot has superb talcum powder rose spice and juicy blackberry aromatics. On the palate it has huge sweetness in the attack with black pit fruits and cassis flavors. It then slams shut on rugged hard tannins that will most likely never soften.</P>

Earthy backward and relatively reserved aromas lead to dense round and while this is not especially complex at the moment it is quite showy and extremely long. In short this is very much a baby that will take its sweet time coming around. For the patient though this isn't a wine for the next 25 years.
