Chateau-de-la-Tour-Clos-Vougeot-Vieilles-Vignes-2013

Chateau de la Tour, Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes, 2013

“Good dark red with ruby highlights. Deep, brooding aromas of black fruits, minerals and dark chocolate. Lush, sweet and layered, conveying a strong impression of sucrosité, but a rose petal quality gives the wine an unexpected light touch (and it’s also bone-dry at under one gram per liter residual sugar, according to François Labet). The wine’s richness is nicely leavened by a note of wild herbs and sound acidity. Finishes with plush, broad tannins and lovely lift and length. When I asked Labet when he would drink this wine, he responded: “Tonight.” But he added that it will probably close up in bottle."
