Like the Bonnes Mares and Chapelle, the medium weight plus flavors are seductive while displaying excellent intensity on the driving finish that flashes the hallmark austerity of a young Clos de Vougeot. This promising effort will require at least some restraint.

It has an attractive bouquet with copious dark cherry, blackberry and crushed flowers.

This might be one cuvée where I prefer the 2015 to this year's counterpart.
