Louis Jadot Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2018

3 units available online.
Product description

The village of Vougeot is in the centre of the Cote de Nuits, flanked on the north by Chambolle Musigny and on the south by Flagey Echezeaux and Vosne Romanee. The 50 ha vineyard faces the east. The geological composition ranges from chalky stoney clay, on the higher parts of the slope, to moist, compact soil richer in humus and with fewer stones on the lower slopes.

This legendary wine has great power, depth and a fragrant, floral bouquet. Serve with roasted or sauced red meat, pheasant, venison or other large game and medium-strength cheeses such as Camembert.

94 Points - James Suckling

This is chewy and meaty with lots of savory fruit and hints of new wood. Yet, it comes out structured and driven. Full-bodied with intense character and a flavorful finish.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

Aromas and flavors of black currant, black cherry, violet and spice are backed by a solid spine of tannins in this supple, yet muscular red. The tannins are assertive now, leaving a dusting of chalk and cocoa on the finish. 

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Revisited in bottle, the 2018 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Domaine Louis Jadot) is showing very well, unwinding in the glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of red cherries, raspberries, sweet soil tones and warm spices. Full-bodied, muscular and tightly wound, with lively acids and prodigious reserves of fine, chalky tannins, this is a serious, structured Clos Vougeot unapologetically built for the long haul.
