95 out of 100..As I noted last year, the vines for the new Michelot Clos Vougeot lie right below Grands EchÃƒÂ©zeaux at the top of the slope on the southern side of the Clos and were planted in 1972. While this is only the second vintage of this wine to be produced chez Michelot, I do not think it is too early to state that this is one of the top four or five examples of Clos Vougeot being currently produced in the CÃƒÂ´te dOr, and the 2011 is a superb follow-up to the inaugural 2010. The beautiful and reserved nose wafts from the glass in a blend of red berries, cherries, coffee, gamebirds, a beautifully complex base of soil, a hint of violet and a judicious base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure, with a fine core of fruit, superb backend energy, refined tannins and excellent length and grip on the bouncy, focused and suave finish. Very high class Clos Vougeot! (Drink between 2022-2070) - John Gilman, View From the Cellar
