Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2007, Gros Frère et Soeur
I typically find wines from the Clos de Vougeot that hardest to appreciate when young due to their four-square structure and unrepenting tannins. They can also be the most disappointing wines from a price/quality perspective due to the reknown of the Clos and the premier status of 50% of the vineyards. This Clos de Vougeot didn't tick any of the normal boxes. Aromas of strawberry, oak and vanilla. Very powerful first impact, bright and sharp. Good tannins but there's little extraction or fruit concentration. The finish is like a strawberry schnapps. We were not convinced by this wine and don't see it ageing gracefully.
