Such a beautiful long cork – really a thing of beauty(!) – I hope the wine is okay!
2000 Vougeraie, Clos de Vougeot
Medium, medium-plus colour. The aromas are deep, including baked dark red fruit framed with a faint leafy note. There is heft in the mouth to match the impact of the aroma; good acidity whisks you into the mid-palate and there’s clearly the dimension of a grand cru here, there’s also a bitter-chocolate flavour and slight astringency that comes from the oak tannins. If the tannins are a little astringent, the fruit has ample sweetness. Never a great Clos de Vougeot, but a tasty and worthy Clos de Vougeot.
