Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from the south part of the vineyard, 0.48 hectares of vine planted in 1947 located in the corner towards Echezeaux on limestone, clay (red and black) and silt soils. It has a very expressive bouquet with vibrant, intense, earthy red berry fruit that demonstrate energy and hubris. The palate is very well-balanced with superb focus. The acidity it well-judged, although it is just missing a little substance towards the finish, like a child losing concentration. Hopefully that will develop by the time this is bottled, because otherwise this is a very fine Clos Vougeot.
