Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 90-92 (2019 Jan.)

An unusually spicy (for Clos de Vougeot) nose offers up cool and airy aromas of various red berries, floral and earth nuances that are trimmed in a hint of oak. There is once again good volume, mid-palate concentration and punch to the sappy flavors that conclude in a powerful finish that also flirts with dryness though it is less evident than in the Cuvée des Alouettes as here it seems more likely that the tannins will eventually round out.
