The immense walled vineyard of the Clos de Vougeot gives so many styles of wine from its 80 growers. This version is already relatively soft with as much generous fruit as tannins. Some high-toast oak flavor needs to integrate, while showing great density and concentration. With power behind it, the wine will age seriously. Drink from 2023.
