Tasted at the Domaine Engel tasting in London, the 2002 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is still a fabulous wine, consummate 2002 red Burgundy. It has a fragrant and floral bouquet with wilted rose petals and just a hint of peony, all with tip-top focus and almost disarming precision. This is a case of less is more. The palate is medium-bodied and very complex with notes of sour cherry, cranberry and underlying minerals. Like before, there is a wondrous sense of symmetry that makes this Clos de Vougeot effortless, while the finish lingers and never wants to leave. Nor do you want it to. Tasted October 2016. - Neal Martin

Dense and backward now this exhibits red cherry black currant mineral and spice aromas and flavors. It's very tightly wound yet all the elements--bright acidity firm ripe tannins and concentrated fruit--are in the right proportions. Don't touch this for five years. Best from 2009 through 2030. (BS)
