Made from the Pinot Noir grape, this wine showcases the elegance and finesse that Burgundy wines are known for. With its deep red color and enticing aromas, it is a true delight for the senses.

These aromas are pure, deep, and bright, promising a complex and layered tasting experience. The wine opens up on the palate with a sweet and sappy character, displaying a wonderfully pliant texture that is rare for a young Clos Vougeot. The primary dark fruit flavors are accented by hints of herbs and licorice, adding depth and complexity. The finish is exceptionally long and gradually builds in intensity, thanks to the firm yet well-integrated tannins.
