Chateau-de-la-Tour-Clos-Vougeot-Vieilles-Vignes-2014

Chateau de la Tour, Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes, 2014

“Bright ruby-red. Lovely mineral and peony high notes lift dark fruits on the nose. Sappy, dense and penetrating, offering terrific concentration and lift to its flavors of dark berries, licorice and minerals. A superb vintage for this wine, less austere than some previous years. “We’re coming from an era of cooler soils to warmer soils,” noted Labet. “Global warming has been very good for Clos-Vougeot.” This thick but energetic wines finishes with suave but serious building tannins and superb length. Incidentally, there was no separate Hommage bottling in 2014."
