Jadot, Louis - Clos Vougeot 2002
Tasting Notes and Scores
Tasting note: Very ripe and incredibly earthy aromas lead to perhaps the densest flavors of any wine tasted today. The flavors are also extremely ripe with notes of chocolate, coffee and obvious torrefaction yet like many extremely ripe '02s, the buffering acidity keeps things fresh if not altogether typical. This is extremely concentrated, almost thick and while there is obvious rusticity and a touch of youthful austerity along with stunning length. To be sure, this is no model of elegance but it's impressive in its fashion with big but completely buried tannins.
