Wine Spectator, December 2018
A silky version, this offers strawberry, currant and floral aromas and flavors, accented by earth and stone notes. Solid, with vibrant acidity and a lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice, backed by a chalky feel... A silky version, this offers strawberry, currant and floral aromas and flavors, accented by earth and stone notes. Solid, with vibrant acidity and a lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice, backed by a chalky feel. Best from 2023 through 2042. — B.S.

A distinctly earthy and very ripe nose flashes notes of plum, dark currant, violet, mocha and discreet but not invisible wood. The rich, full-bodied and powerful big-bodied flavors terminate in mouth coating, youthfully... A distinctly earthy and very ripe nose flashes notes of plum, dark currant, violet, mocha and discreet but not invisible wood. The rich, full-bodied and powerful big-bodied flavors terminate in mouth coating, youthfully austere and impressively long finish. This terrific if very backward effort is a classic Clos de Vougeot of power and restraint that will require ample cellar time.

Pure but muted aromas of medicinal black cherry and licorice. In a distinctly virile style and hard to taste today following the sensational range of Vosne premier crus, as this youthfully imploded wine shows more pronounced herb, menthol and earth elements and little early sweetness. A forceful if less sophisticated wine but its tannins are still rather smooth (Grivot described it as "un grand garçon maladroit"). This will never make a showy tasting wine but it should work well with serious cold-weather fare. Made almost entirely from Grivot's lowest Clos Vougeot wines near the Route Nationale, as his vines a bit higher up were more affected by the frost. -- Stephen Tanzer

The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is showing well from bottle, unfurling in the glass with aromas of dark berries, rose petals, cassis and spices, subtly framed by new wood.

The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is showing well from bottle, unfurling in the glass with aromas of dark berries, rose petals, cassis and spices, subtly framed by new wood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and nicely concentrated, its chassis of velvety tannin largely cloaked in juicy fruit, concluding with a nicely delineated finish. It's comparatively elegant in style. The 2016 is derived almost exclusively from Grivot's holdings at the bottom of the vineyard as his higher-lying plots were ravished by frost. - William Kelley

Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, November 2017
(17.5+/20) Rich crimson. Gamey and very different from their Vosnes. Lots of gas and tension. Chewy finish and solid. Good attempt but I miss the energy of the Vosnes! Big and muscly. Very long. Needs food!
