Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2016 - Chauvenet-Chopin
"Creation in 1985 following the takeover of the family estate, the area currently has about 14,50Hectares, following the takeover in 2001 of the area Chopin Groffier (Comblanchien) of 14 appellations. The area pays special attention to the work of the vines: budding, green harvest (if too much load) manual stripping, tillage or cover crops following the parcels, hand harvested .... Winemaking for every vintage, the grapes reception on a vibrating table and barreling without pump (with elevator). The wines are aged between 12 and 18 months in barrels (20 to 40% depending on the vintage and new designations) bottling at the estate. The plot of the Clos De Vougeot the field, 35 acres is located in the Château De La Tour and aged over 60 years. The wines of Clos de Vougeot have an intense color, strong aftertaste, and are laying down. ""Here's presence! ""Hugh Johnson notes about this red wine. Nowadays, the owners of the vineyard are many: we can not therefore draw a unique portrait of the wines of Clos de Vougeot. However, the common features closer. A very intense color: red raspberry to deep garnet. The sweetness of its bouquet evokes spring: pink blossoming at dawn, purple as the morning dew, wet mignonette. This is added blackberry, raspberry, wild mint, licorice, truffles ... On the palate, a sovereign taste, rich in sap and soft, where the elegant finesse and a fleshy fullness marry. Strong aftertaste and long aging (10 to 30 years, sometimes beyond)."
