Domaine Henri Rebourseau Clos de Vougeot 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Bourgogne|
|Brand||Domaine Henri Rebourseau|
A wine with pronounced minerality expressing earthy notes of fern, moss and truffle, revealing velvety tones of coffee beans and black radish. « From Clos de Vougeot a soul is released, singing praises, adoration, … Spirit ».
A graceful, delineated red, boasting black cherry, plum, iron and earth flavors framed by vanilla and oak spices. Delivering a dense matrix of fine-grained tannins, this is also fresh and focused on the spiced aftertaste. Though complex and still youthful, this feels effortless. Best from 2026 through 2045.
The 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has quite a high-toned bouquet with dark berry fruit, a touch of fresh prune and dark honey. The palate is plush and quite decadent. This is a voluminous Clos de Vougeot that just needs a little more grip and freshness on the finish. The 2019 is an example where I think there is a tangible step up with the Clos de Vougeot Vieilles Vignes.
