The Clos-Vougeot is a wine of power and depth that retains an elegant complexity. It has a full fragrant and distinctly floral bouquet.
Maison Louis Jadot "Clos Vougeot" may accompany "haute cuisine" dishes. With its delicate yet powerful aromas, one could choose red meat, roasted or served with a sauce, roasted pheasant, leg of wild boar or venison and ripe cheeses that are not too strong, such as Camembert, Brillat-Savarin, Citeaux.

"A very toasty nose evidences a hint of tar on the mentholated nose both red and dark berry fruit and pungent earth aromas. There is good volume to the unusually supple, suave and smooth middle weight flavors that possess an opulent mouth feel as there is a plenitude of palate coating dry extract. There is a touch of warmth on the moderately austere, notably firm, robust and powerful finish that isn't especially refined but it is impressively persistent."

"Good medium red. Expressive aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol; ... very Clos Vougeot. Dense and vibrant, with very good underlying spine to its black fruit flavors. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and excellent length. A serious Clos Vougeot in the making."
