Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

Le Grand Maupertui

 

This wine may be characterised by its impressive fullness. Its power, sometimes a bit austere and monolithic, is tempered by ripe tannins. Its weight moves across the tongue with lots of harmony and fullness, even a certain elegance underneath its romanesque character.

Velvet purple colour, it is the archetype of beautiful Pinot Noir. Pronounced aromas of black fruit (ripe cherry, plum and black current...) as well as spice (pepper, cloves, nutmeg...). A candied element develops as it ages, in addition to complex secondary aromas associated with meaty nuances.


Possibilities for food pairing tend to lean toward richer dishes: roasted red meat with berries or fruit, red meat in sauce, game with sorrel...red currant jam, mild cheeses or nothing at all.

This wine has excellent ageing potential. Nevertheless, according to our believes about great wines, it is often possible to drink the wine while still young when the tannin and structure are at the forefront, essential qualities for balancing a great wine.

Petits échos du millésime 2015 :

The Wine Advocate:(93-95)

Drink Date 2019 - 2038

The 2015 Clos Vougeot le Grand Maupertui has a distinctly more floral bouquet than many others than I tasted from barrel, iris and crushed violet petals infusing the black cherry and blueberry fruit. I admire the precision and terroir expression here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe, red and black fruit, a hint of mulberry and white pepper developing in the glass. It has a grainy texture, firm structure and natural balance and poise on the sustained finish. Persistent in the mouth, this is an excellent Clos Vougeot from Anne Gros.
