Clos de Vougeot, Grand Cru, 2021

Tasting Note:

Deep ripe dark cherry fruit, some plum with some sweeter oak notes still evident. Spherical tannins caress the pallet. With a sense of stature and profundity, there are more of the earthy bass notes here on the palate with a touch of Christmas spice in the mix. There’s length and plenty of power, but it’s gently delivered. This is likely to be one of the slower maturing wines in the range. Méo-Camuzet has brilliantly situated vines in Clos de Vougeot, one big parcel is just in front of the Château at the north-west end of the vineyard. A third of the vines were planted in the 1920s, a third 1960s and the rest replanted 20-30 years old. The wine can withstand a large proportion of new oak during its élevage in barriques, which in this case is 85%.
