Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Lucid ruby color, the Clos Vougeot ‘11 has a rather two-dimensional bouquet, quite earthy and needing more fruit -- a “flightless” bouquet. The palate is rather austere and masculine and I would have preferred more flesh towards the finish. I was initially quite severe with this wine, although it does improve in the glass, gaining some cohesion and vigor. Having said that, I still feel that this is not one of the domaine’s strongest efforts this year.
