||Huge work of the roots that must go to eat very deeply: how far down the part planted in 1920, which represents about a third of the plot? Another third reached adulthood, since the vines were planted in the 60s, the balance dates back to the 70s and 80s.
|Composition of the land
||We are lucky to be located at the top of the appellation, at the foot of the castle. These are the most visited vines of all Clos! This large plot (almost 3 ha) in one piece has a balanced but shallow structure (40 cm of soil), where the roots must sneak through pebbles, broken rocks and finally the rock. mother. The grapes ripen very well and are harvested among the very first in the field.
||The complexity inherent in a grand cru is palpable soon enough, the wine is easily approached. It can be drunk young but its longevity surprises and is at the origin of beautiful moments of tasting, rewarding patience.
||Clos Vougeot is a wine that is still ripe and has a fine texture. The vinification will be more extractive than the average (for example by pigeages) to obtain a little more length.
||This wine reacts well to the new barrel, especially Tronçais wood. He quickly finds his balance and gives the tone of the vintage, however a breeding a little prolonged brings out the depth.
