The 2016 Christian Clerget Vougeot, Les Petits Vougeot is a remarkable Pinot Noir from the prestigious Burgundy region of France. With its elegant red color and enticing aromas, this wine immediately captivates the senses.

On the nose, the wine reveals a bouquet of ripe red fruits, such as cherries and raspberries, intermingled with subtle floral notes. There is also a hint of earthiness, which is characteristic of wines from the Cote de Nuits sub-region.

Upon the first sip, the wine showcases its exceptional quality and craftsmanship. The middle weight flavors burst with freshness and vibrancy, displaying a perfect balance between fruitiness and acidity. As the wine glides across the palate, a subtle minerality emerges, adding complexity and depth.

The finish of this wine is linear and mildly austere, leaving a lasting impression. The admirable fine-grained tannins shape the finale, providing a firm structure that promises longevity. It is worth noting that this particular vintage underwent malolactic fermentation until September, resulting in a wine that is still evolving and will benefit from a few years of cellaring to fully unwind.

The 2016 Christian Clerget Vougeot, Les Petits Vougeot is a true expression of the terroir and the artistry of winemaker Christian Clerget. It is a wine that showcases the beauty and complexity of Pinot Noir from the Burgundy region. Whether enjoyed now or cellared for future enjoyment, this wine is a testament to the timeless elegance and finesse that Burgundy wines are renowned for.
