Domaine Odoul-Coquard

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru

    • Description :

      Sebastien rents the vines in this Grand Cru from his uncle who owns .2 ha (7 rows) of Clos Vougeot, located both at the top and bottom of the vineyard. Traditionally, the top produces more elegant wines with the soil at the bottom of the vineyard being richer, thus producing larger grapes. By combining the harvest, Sebastien is able to achieve the "sweet spot" that he otherwise might find in the middle of the vineyard. The wine spends fifteen months in 60% new French oak.

      Grape varieties :

      Pinot Noir

      Altitude :

      255m ASL

      Vineyard age :

      45-year-old vines

      Soil :

      Variety of soils ranging from coarse and gravelly over limestone to richer clay

      Tasting notes :

      Distinctive wine, fruity, powerful, with strong tannins and spicy notes. Better in five years, with great aging potential. A perfect match to spicy meals and ripened cheeses.
