Bouchard Pere & Fils - Clos Vougeot 2016

Vinous: 92 Points

The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a simple, red cherry and strawberry scented nose, almost as if there was a bit of carbonic maceration - Beaujolais-like. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin on the entry. Here the fruit is darker and lightly spiced, quite "solid" towards the finish at the expense of some finesse, although there is commendable length. Not bad, but not top of the class. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. (Drink between 2021-2035)

Burghound: 91-94 Points

A very ripe nose stops just short of being surmature and jammy speaks of poached plum, cassis and earth. There is outstanding richness to the concentrated and plush broad-shouldered flavors that deliver excellent length on the sappy finish that flirts with austerity. Patience advised. (Drink starting 2034)
