Domaine Gros Frère et Sœur, Clos de Vougeot ‘Musigni’ Grand Cru 1996

Gros Frere Vougeot 1996 #2Saturated ruby, faded rim.  Generously toasted but not overt.  Evocations of mace, game and pastis.  Sunlit, sumptuous griotte and cassis.  A rich texture of velour yet with fine mineralic nuance.  Structurally assured without a hint of ’96 stridency.  Galvanic and detailed at the end.  Halycon Clos de Vougeot.  Just about ready, returning again to how exciting these ’96s were upon release.  Now – 2026+.
