Philippe Cheron Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France 2014

Regular price $ 243.60

"This beautiful and very old, 1.43 hectare vineyard parcel, planted in 1934 at a density of 12,000 vines per hectare, is located in Les Hautes Baudes in the middle of the Clos, on the Flagey Echezeaux side.  It allows an average yield of 33 hl/ha.  Here, the shallow soil, lying over a slab of Bajocian limestone, is richer in brown clay; the gentle slope provides natural drainage; in the lower part of the vineyard, the soil structure is lightened by fine silt...Clos Vougeot draws extraordinary power and complexity from its terroir.  The wine displays a particularly intense colour, fine fleshy sap, and an elegant bouquet where red berry aromas mingle with notes of violets and liquorice."
