The flavors add wild strawberry, incense and kirsch notes, while remaining persistent on the kaleidoscopic finish. Feels tense now, yet should develop nicely over time. A mineral element lingers. Best from 2023 through 2045. From France.—B.S.

(92-94) An intensely earthy nose of a wide range of red berry aromas is surrounded by an abundance of menthol and wood scents.

(92-94) An intensely earthy nose of a wide range of red berry aromas is surrounded by an abundance of menthol and wood scents. The muscular and sizably-scaled flavors possess a rounded and relatively supple mid-palate that contrasts considerably with the robust, serious, rustic and exceptionally firm finish. I like the depth as well as the persistence of this youthfully austere finish that makes clear that this too is going to require extended cellaring.

The 2016 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Domaine Louis Jadot) is showing well from bottle, unwinding in the glass with a youthfully primary bouquet of ripe cherries, red berries, candied peel and cassis that's subtly framed by some nicely integrated new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and satiny textured, its broad-shouldered chassis of impressively fine-grained tannin cloaked in a succulent, even tangy core of vibrant fruit, concluding with a long and nicely defined finish. While the structure is sufficiently refined that drinking a glass now isn't a brutalizing experience, a decade of patience is recommended. - William Kelley

Medicinal red cherry, licorice, herbs and a strong element of spicy oak on the nose. Concentrated, savory and flavorful, communicating an impression of medicinal reserve. A classic, rather old-fashioned, masculine style of Clos Vougeot but not rustic or hard. Still, its tight, dusty tannins will require extended cellaring. Technical director Frédéric Barnier believes that Jadot's Clos Vougeot has been getting steadily softer, as this site has benefited from climate change; he also noted that he has not changed the vinification. Still, this is a seriously tannic, rather saline wine without any easy sweetness. -- Stephen Tanzer
