Stephen Tanzer - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, January 2015
(ST91-94 points) Good deep red with ruby highlights. Black cherry lifted by wild herbs and pepper on the nose. Vibrant on the attack, then plush and ripe in the middle, with black raspberry and bitter chocolate flavors... (ST91-94 points) Good deep red with ruby highlights. Black cherry lifted by wild herbs and pepper on the nose. Vibrant on the attack, then plush and ripe in the middle, with black raspberry and bitter chocolate flavors framed by harmonious ripe acidity. Spreads out nicely on the back end, finishing with fine-grained tannins and lovely lingering spicy sweetness.

A dense nose features notes of very ripe plum, cassis, violet, spice, earth and tea nuances that are trimmed in moderate wood and menthol notes. There is excellent intensity and power to the concentrated middle weight... A dense nose features notes of very ripe plum, cassis, violet, spice, earth and tea nuances that are trimmed in moderate wood and menthol notes. There is excellent intensity and power to the concentrated middle weight plus flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract that pushes the very firm core of tannins to the background on the moderately austere, complex and wonderfully long finish. This is solidly well-balanced and while it’s quite firm it’s not hard or rustic. 2028+

Tasted blind at Fine & Rare Wines' Clos Vougeot tasting, the 2013 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru from Château de la Tour has a "placid" bouquet that is minding its own business. It is nicely defined, but you get the feeling that it is holding something back. With a little aeration it reveals attractive blackcurrant pastille and Morello cherry scents, then later, a hint of dried orange peel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is good density and weight here, appreciable mineralité although the finish is reticent for the time being. Give this a 3-4 years in bottle and you will have a very fine Clos Vougeot. - Neal Martin

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, November 2016
A bright, cherry- and black currant–flavored red, accented by sweet spice, sandalwood and an underlying savoriness. The tannins are firm. Best from 2019 through 2030. — B.S.
