Chateau De la Tour Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2014

What do these icons mean?

"A moderate application of wood frames the overtly floral and attractive fresh aromas of ripe dark cherry, cassis and soft earth hints. The sleek and delineated flavors possess a supple mid-palate though the youthfully austere finish tightens up quickly. This should be approachable after only 6 to 8 years but reward 12 to 15." 90-93 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 61

The Cuvée Classique (as this wine is known) is drawn from the Domaine's parcels on the mid slope of the Clos as well as parcels on the lower and upper parts of the vineyard. There are six parcels in total, which vary considerably in size. The main parcels are situated in the middle of the Clos include the lieux-dits Montiottes Basses, Quatorze Journaux and Quartier Marei Bas (home also to the 1910 planted vieilles vignes parcel). The smallest holdings are those in the Quatorze Journaux and Baudes Saint Martin lieux dits, two parcels at the bottom of the slope that sandwich Etienne Grivot's vines, and La Plante l'Abbé, at the top of the Clos, near the Chateau and the Grands Echezeaux border. These vineyards have been managed organically for well over 20 years and average around 50-60 years of age. 100% whole bunch, no added yeasts and aged in 50% new oak, are the main winemaking specs, with the barrels being fashioned according to each season by Stéphane Chassin in Charente (see below).

This is a super fine, pure and fine Cuvée Classique, wonderfully perfumed, and fleshy. The flowing grenadine and dark cherry fruit is superbly supported by lively, ripe acidity and savoury yet very fine, well integrated tannins. Enormous depth and ferrous mineral notes and even some forest floor complexity creeping through. Stéphane Chassin and Labet have collaborated to fashion an excellent barrel for this vintage, for while present, the wood does not cloud the soaring fruit purity of this year's wine. A great vintage for this wine.
