Chateau De La Tour Clos-Vougeot Hommage à Jean Morin 2018

酒評分數:BH 93-96


Coming from the same one-hectare plot as the Vieilles Vignes planted in 1910, only the first shoot on each old vine is selected for the Jean Morin, who was the maternal grandfather of Francois Labet.  Monsieur Morin was from Nuits-St-Georges and an accomplished athlete.  He was a member of the French delegation in both the London summer and Saint Moritz winter Olympics of 1948, fencing and bobsledding respectively.  He was also a confirmed driver paticipating to the Mille Miglia or Monte Carlo Rally.  The wine expresses the prowness of the man, broad shouldered and powerful, showing firm tannins, supreme elegance and a phenomenal finsh.

COLOR: Deep ruby

AROMA: Spicy plum, earth, and dried flowers are pronounced with subtle oak aromas.

TASTE: Lush, dense and full-bodied flavors of rich, concentrated dark fruits are layered with firm muscular tannins, with an endless finish.
