(91-94) A pungent nose of reduction and wood makes an evaluation of it difficult today. There is both good density and punch to the vibrant big-bodied flavors that offer fine power but not at the expense of a certain level of refinement on the youthfully austere finale. A classically styled example.

(92-94) The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, which was cropped around 20 hectoliters per hectare, has a well-defined bouquet, more mineral driven than I anticipated, possessing plenty of detailed dark cherry and strawberry fruit. This feels nimble in the mouth, with fine tannin and a fine bead of acidity. Maybe it does not have the length and persistence of the 2015, but it is still a delicious, very elegant Clos de Vougeot.

Slightly medicinal aromas and flavors of black cherry, menthol, licorice, minerals and spices. Tactile, concentrated and a bit youthfully tough, showing surprising sweetness leavened by strong savory minerality. This rather powerful, saline Clos Vougeot will need bottle aging to harmonize its tannins and acids. Charles van Canneyt noted that he needs to be careful about extraction with this cuvée in order to avoid making a heavy wine; and it routinely has a relatively high pH.
