The Clos de Vougeot Vieilles Vignes 2012 from Chateau de la Tour is a very impressive effort – made from very old wines. The nose is crammed with intense quite serious red and dark fruit … spiced with a deep earthy minerality and a healthy dose of oak. On the palate layers of weighty fruit … excellent concentration .. with a nice vibrancy and a long intense finish with a lovely terroir impression. Very well balanced .. with an old school expression .. will need plenty of time in the cellar. A very impressive Clos de Vougeot … one of the best wines I have tasted from this vineyard.
