Clos de Vougeot Joseph Drouhin 2013 (750ML)
92 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at Fine & Rare Wines' Clos Vougeot tasting, the 2013 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru from Maison Joseph Drouhin has a light and breezy nose, not as complex as others, but with attractive red cherry, crushed strawberry and violet aromas. It actually gains more nuance as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with nicely interwoven new oak. Modest weight in the mouth, what I like here is the well-judged acidity that maintains tension from start to finish. It needs time to fully subsume the wood; and to quibble, it needs more persistence. But at its core is a really quite pretty, comely Clos Vougeot." 11/15
91+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "(Drouhin did not use include their lower parcel in the blend in 2013): Good dark red. Very high-pitched, intensely spicy nose. Intensely flavored and fresh, displaying terrific spicy energy to its dark cherry and mineral flavors. Conveys a captivating impression of weightlessness. Ripe tannins are already nicely integrated with the wine's fruit. This should gain in complexity as it unfolds with bottle aging." 11/15
91-94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "As with several wines in the range there is a noticeable touch of menthol adding a top note to the earthy black raspberry aromas. There is fine mid-palate density and dry extract that imparts a velvety mouth feel to the delicious broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent length on the very firmly structured and moderately austere finale. This will very definitely need at least 8 to 10 years of cellar time and 15 to 18 would be better...91-94." 04/15
