The 2012 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru has a very fragrant bouquet with scents of blueberry, blackcurrant pastilles and dried rose petals – all very well delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, grainy tannins, good depth and great precision towards the finish. This is one of the domaine’s best wines this year – real class.

93-95 points, eRobertParker.com (Issue # 210 - Dec 2013)

This is more expressive than it usually is at this point in its development with a broad-ranging nose of red currant, pungent earth, soft wood spice and hints of underbrush. There is a lovely vibrancy to the rich, caressing and restrained large-scaled flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration and strikingly good persistence on the youthfully austere finish. Good stuff in 2012 but even more structured than usual so patience will be required.
