Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2007, Drouhin-Laroze

Courtesy of the Justerini & Brooks Burgundy 2007 tasting. After 15 years of Burgundy tasting from the barrel and from the bottle I can confess that Clos de Vougeot is the toughest to decipher when young. No difference here: dull red fruits, plum, toasty and then a structure like Stone Henge on the palate surrounded by a wooden stockade worthy of Julius Caeser when fitting Vercingetorix. Try again in 2019!
