Louis Jadot Clos Vougeot 2015
|Region||France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis|
This wine is all tannins at this stage, smothering the black fruits. That will change as it matures, revealing dense blackberries and plums as well as keeping its tannins as a base for the exuberant fruitiness. The wine comes from a blend of different parcels that together make up just over four acres of this vineyard owned by Louis Jadot. Drink this wine from 2025.
Monolithic today, this seems one-dimensional, displaying elements of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit, with rose, mineral and spice flavors. Firmly structured and well-proportioned, with a solid grip on the finish. Be patient. Best from 2023 through 2045. 900 cases made.
The 2015 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru has an expressive nose with red cherry, cranberry and strawberry fruit, a feminine bouquet with neatly integrated new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite tensile in the mouth with a slightly pinched, compact finish that should broaden out once it has completed its ÃÂÃÂ©levage. This is a respectable grand cru, even if I would not hold it up as one of Jadot's top-tier 2015s.
