Clos de Vougeot (1.5 L)
There are five tonneaux of the 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru this year, matured in 70-75% new oak as Christine felt the structure could absorb that level of new oak. It has a very complex bouquet with intense red and black fruit, hoisin, marmalade and blood orange. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very structured and beautifully defined, the new oak lending substance towards the persistent finish. It will require 4-5 years to subsume the wood, but it will be worth waiting for.
