A sweet, juicy fruit bomb in the mouth; supple and pliant but with terrific cut and sappy energy. This has the inner-mouth tension of a 2010. Finishes firm but not hard, with fine-grained tannins and lovely vibrancy. This has turned out very well.

A brooding and largely inexpressive nose speaks of pungently earthy cool dark berry fruit aromas where additional breadth is present in the form of humus, underbrush and game tones. There is excellent punch and plenty of power evident on the muscular large-scaled flavors that exhibit fine depth and length as well as a touch of backend wood on the austere and moderately chewy finish.

The 2011 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru was matured 100% in new oak. The oak seems more dominant than the Lavaux St. Jacques at this stage, the terroir unable to impress itself upon the aromatics to the same degree. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly leafy entry. It is nicely balanced with a touch of spice toward the finish, although personally I prefer the aforementioned Gevrey premier cru.
