Tasted blind at Fine & Rare Wines' Clos Vougeot tasting, the 2013 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru from Chanson seemed a little enervated on the nose, missing the fruit intensity and the charm of Bouchard Père. The palate is simple, rather rustic with obdurate tannins and a very simple, rather bitter finish that is not befitting of a Grand Cru.
Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of black fruit mixed with leather and spices on a hint of vanilla. Powerful, complex and dense. Silky texture. Elegant oak note and well crafted tannins. Very pure fruit. Outstanding persistence.
