Dominique Laurent Clos Vougeot V.V “Sui Generis” 2003

酒評分數:2005年份 RP 93 – 95


2005 Dominique Laurent • Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes

Representing three barrels from old vines in the Maupertui section that he says give regular if low yields and (in contrast with his nearby Grands Echezeaux) consistently high sugar (“13.7% even in 1998″), Laurent’s 2005 Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes offers deeply-rich aromas and flavors of almost candied black cherry fruit, roasted meats and soy. This is a wine that takes ones palate by storm, displaying enormous breadth and grip, abundant tannins, and detached but not excessive vanilla and resin notes of new wood. It will need a decade, I suspect, even to approach harmonious drinkability.
