The late Philippe Engel seemed to do no wrong in this vintage, as this exquisite 2002 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru will testify. There is immense precision and detail on the nose, a sense of symmetry that is translated through to the palate. There is a brightness to the mineral-rich wild strawberry and cranberry fruit.

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)
