Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: "Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru is more fruit-forward on the nose with ebullient raspberry and wild strawberry aromas, a pleasant touch of reduction that recedes with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, the fleshy cassis-tinged fruit offset by a fine thread of acidity, leading to an energetic and virile finish. This should give plenty of drinking pleasure over the next decade. Tasted September 2016." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
About the winery:
Since 1885, the Boillot Family leads a vineyard masterfully on the finest appellations of the Cote de Beaune. Today Henri Boillot is the one leading this 19 hectares estate. The leading current wine critics recognize his hard and meticulous work. Seven hectares of Chardonnay on the Meursault, Corton-Charlemagne and Puligny-Montrachet AOCs provide flattering white wines in their youth yet with great maturing ability.
