Domaine JEAN FOURNIER Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru "Le Grand Maupertuis" 2019
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: "The 2019 Clos Vougeot Le Grand Maupertui Grand Cru comes from low-yielding 45-year-old vines and from a purchased barrel. This shows a touch of reduction on the nose that makes it difficult to read. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, saturated tannins, the new oak imparts quite a lot of wood tannins on the finish, which is why it deserves three or four years in bottle." - Neal Martin, Vinous
