Ripe, velvety, old-viney fruit aromas and flavors dominated by blackberries and black cherries are marked by distinct notes of violets, toast and minerals in this wine, and are set in a powerful yet elegant tannic structure.
Wine Advocate 89 points - Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Clos de Vougeot 2011 from Louis Jadot has a relatively simple bouquet that lacks the complexity of some of its peers, although at least it is clean and fresh and less green. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, touches of white pepper and sous-bois that form its masculine, austere, but at the end of the day, not disagreeable finish. This is one for those that like classic style of Clos de Vougeot. (Nov 2014)
Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2011 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a fragrant, well-defined bouquet with pure fresh strawberry, Morello cherry and citrus aromas. The palate is well-balanced with a fine grip, good weight, more comes across more masculine than the nose suggests, but with a firm confident finish. Good aging potential here. Drink 2015-2030.
