This Vougeot is marked by richness, concentration, velvety structure, broad aromatics, length, and power. It is a complete wine, and one that merits at least eight years of bottle age before it is enjoyed.
There is a bit more overall oak influence to the cooler and more restrained combination of red and dark berries with similar floral and earth nuances. The bigger difference lies in the tighter and denser medium weight plus flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the beautifully textured, more complex, more structured and more austere finale. In short, there is just more here and if this is bottled separately, when all is said and done it may well rival the Rognets. In a word, terrific.
