Servants of the Seasons: Burgundy 2021 (Jan 2023)

The 2021 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a light, tertiary bouquet that is very ephemeral, as if a light draught could blow the aromatics away. The palate is medium-bodied with finely chiselled tannins that frame tart red fruit. Quite peppery in style though there is not much weight and grip on the finish at the moment. This needs to gain weight during the remainder of its barrel maturation.
