2015 Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux Clos Vougeot (750ml)



By Allen Meadows Jan-18, Issue #69, 93 points (Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Red) A very ripe and mocha-infused nose reflects notes of plum, warm earth and a hint of wood spice. There is fine freshness and energy to the intense, rich and muscular big-bodied flavors that retain a solid sense of detail before culminating in a firm, serious and built-to-age finish. There is some youthful austerity present as well as a touch of rusticity and this is going to require an extended stay in a cool cellar to resolve the moderately firm tannic spine.
