Clos de Vougeot, Grand Cru, 2017

Tasting Note:

The only 2017 at the estate to be fermented with whole bunches (30%). That typically Clos de Vougeot brooding quality but with a great deal

Pure, clear flavours of loganberry, raspberry and Victoria plum with a gentle earthiness grounding the lively fruit.

Aged in 20% new oak.
