A brooding and almost completely inexpressive nose reveals the barest glimpses of dark berry fruit as it fights with the very prominent toasty wood. The round and very supple big-bodied flavors possess good mid-palate concentration as well as fine size, weight and power before terminating in a velvety, delicious and youthfully austere finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose reappears. This exceptionally primary effort will require long-term cellaring to be at its absolute peak. Note that I would not suggest this as a good candidate to enjoy young as the wood is presently annoying even though the density is such that my rating implicitly assumes that it will eventually be absorbed.

The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru from Louis Jadot has a lifted, licorice-tinged bouquet with plenty of guts to it. There aromatics do not hold back. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, dense black fruit with a structured finish that does not quite deliver the complexity the aromatics suggest at first, but with aeration, manifests subtle nuances and fine mineralité. This is a great success for winemaker Frédéric Barnier and his team. - Neal Martin

On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with nascent complexity, ripe, well-integrated tannins, excellent focus and grip and a very, very long, primary and soil-driven finish. This will be an excellent bottle of Clos Vougeot in a dozen years or so. (Drink between 2025-2075)

Perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, red cherry, licorice pastille and flowers. Sappy, savory and a bit youthfully clenched and four-square on the palate, showing a rather austere, medicinal character accentuated by a slightly herbal peppery quality. Today the fruit is kept under wraps by the wine's firm spine of acids and tannins. Revealed a note of maraschino cherry with 48 hours in the recorked bottle but retained its menthol and licorice qualities. This will require patience. 92+

The pure cherry and raspberry flavors are driven by vivid acidity and a firm base of tannins, keeping this lean and tense, with an innate minerality. Still a bit tight and compact on the finish, but this finds... The pure cherry and raspberry flavors are driven by vivid acidity and a firm base of tannins, keeping this lean and tense, with an innate minerality. Still a bit tight and compact on the finish, but this finds equilibrium with some sweet fruit. Best from 2019 through 2032. — B.S.

Rich and medicinal on the nose. Crunchy and positive. Lots of structure but also masses of fruit. Pretty smart for the appellation! 17.5/20
