"The 2019 Le Grand Clos is a quiet and graceful wine. It's as if a symphony orchestra has been playing pianissimo and then they've come to a collective pause, holding its bows and breath before releasing the tension and easing into the next lyrical passage. Having been fermented and raised in 500-liter barrels for 10 months, there oak is subtle but evident in its almond pastry flavors and its rounded edges. It offers the intensity of old, low-yielding vines (an ancient 90-years-old) but it does so in a tranquil, unshowy manner. The wine finishes with a stream of flowing acidity, providing a cleansing and precise spine as well as phenolic tension offering grip and cheek-licking texture. The scented finish is long and satisfying. A delightful baby that the impatient could open now but has the structure and concentration to go on and on." —Vinous
