A high-toned mix of floral, wild cherry, currant and mint flavors marks this tightly wound style. This is supported by fine-grained oak and similarly refined tannins, yet has the intensity to match, ending in a long, cascading aftertaste of fruit, spice and chalk. Best from 2023 through 2045.—B.S.

(92-95) Here too the wood treatment isn't subtle though it doesn't completely mask the mostly red berry fruit, earth and humus aromas.

(92-95) Here too the wood treatment isn't subtle though it doesn't completely mask the mostly red berry fruit, earth and humus aromas. Once again there is both good volume and mid-palate density to the mouth coating big-bodied flavors that flash a mild touch of rusticity on the impressively long finale. Interestingly, this is a bit less youthfully austere than it usually is and overall, color me impressed.

Alluring floral nose combines blackberry, black raspberry, violet and licorice. A savory and rather refined young Clos Vougeot, offering subtle notes of dark berries, flowers and earth rather than this grand cru's more typical black cherry and herb qualities. Nothing rustic about this highly promising Clos Vougeot! - Stephen Tanzer

The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru opens in the glass with an attractive bouquet of dark berries, red cherries, smoked meats and rich, loamy soil. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, succulent but tight-knit, with a nicely concentrated core of sapid fruit, racy acids and fine-grained but youthfully chewy tannins. It's one of the more reserved wines in the range, but it also doesn't appear to possess the plenitude or completeness of Faiveley's most successful cuvées in the 2016 vintage. - William Kelley
