(BH89-92 points) This too evidences background notes of wood spice on the slightly riper red berry fruit nose that displays plenty of earth and underbrush on the supple, intense and nicely voluminous flavors that possess a slightly chewy textured on the explosive finish. The old vine intensity really shines through here and this is an interesting effort as it's not nearly as large-scaled as the flavor impact would suggest. Worth a look.

As usual, Raphet's "regular" Clos Vougeot – reflecting the estate's largest cru surface area – was diffuse and not terribly distinguished, whereas a 2006 Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes – the sixth successive bottle of fruit... As usual, Raphet's "regular" Clos Vougeot – reflecting the estate's largest cru surface area – was diffuse and not terribly distinguished, whereas a 2006 Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes – the sixth successive bottle of fruit from their oldest and best-placed vines – is impressive, if rather austere. (At around 115 cases, this represents the largest volume in which this cuvee has yet been produced.) Singed meat, bitter-sweet black fruits, and chalk are present already in the nose, and follow onto a palate of palpable density and suffused with fine, firm tannins. This finishes with formidable force and grip, yet without any sense of weight. It should be worth following for at least the better part of a decade but deserves to be left alone for the next several years. - David Schildknecht

Expressive nose with ripe fruit flavors of red plum and cranberry confiture. The old vines are on full display on the palate as the core of ripe red fruit continues in the purest fashion, driving the wine towards a fresh, mouthwatering finish. Soft and open-knit 10+ years in, this Clos de Vougeot displays the faintest of fine-grained tannins on the finish and is in a lovely, still youthful, drinking window.
