Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2013 Apr.)

This is really quite floral in character with unusually elegant red berry fruit, especially red currant scents that display plenty of soil tones. There is fine volume and excellent mid-palate density to the medium-bodied flavors that are supported by markedly firm but not aggressive tannins on the moderately austere and impressively persistent finish. This is very much a classic Clos de Vougeot and patience will absolutely be required as I don't see this being particularly approachable young.
