Expert Reviews

92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010

($110) Pale yellow-straw. Less open on the nose than the "regular" Clos, offering hints of peach, almond, truffle and licorice, plus a steely aspect. Begins leaner, tougher and oakier than the Clos, with strong stony cut, then shows a more exotic aspect with aeration, as well as more oak spice. With its stony core and firm acidity, this wine has a serious structure and excellent grip. Also quite fine-grained but a bit youthfully disjointed today, with its finishing flavors currently a bit suppressed by its oak element (45% for the first several months of elevage It would be educational to compare these two versions of Les Clos two, five and ten years hence.
