Clos Vougeot Grand Crü 2016 - Bouchard Père & Fils
A complex bouquet of red and black fruit with spicy and woody notes. Brilliant elegance on the palate with a perfect balance of finesse and elegance. It can potentially last over 20 years and goes perfectly with roasted meat dishes or with sauces, game and medium-aged cheeses.
In 1110, the Cistercian monks were donated land in the village of Vougeot which they very quickly planted with vines and kept until the Revolution. Today, the prestigious "clos" of 50 hectares belongs to about 80 owners. The soils at Clos Vougeot have quite different characteristics, from gravel and chalk at the top of the plateau producing a velvety wine, to brown, marly, clayey soil at the bottom giving stronger wines.
