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.

(91-93 points) The 2016 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru was not impacted by the frost as the vines lie toward the bottom of the slope. It has a relatively extravagant bouquet among the grand crus from Jadot, hints of menthol infusing the red berry fruit. I wonder if that will remain once the wine is bottled? The palate is medium-bodied with juicy, ripe tannin, a fine bead of acidity, quite grippy in the mouth but the finish is not quite as finessed as the aromatics would like. Give this four or five years in bottle. - NM

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

This is built for the long haul, its nose of creamy red and black fruit, incense and dark spice introducing a full-bodied, firm wine with impressive depth and concentration. It's in need of 15 years in the cellar to soften and civilise.
