"The 2018 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru is matured with 50% whole cluster, which Berthaut described as an experiment, as it is the first time she has used stems to impart freshness. This has a precise, peppery, undergrowth-tinged bouquet that unfurls nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, the stems adding the freshness I think this Grand Cru needs, and elongating the finish. Using stems was a good move and the same has been done for the 2019."
