1989 Vougeot, Charles de Vallière.
Vintage Score 1989 Burgundy Red - 16/20.
Wine Characteristics :
Red: Vougeot has close affinities with its illustrious near neighbours (Clos de Vougeot, Musigny, Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses). Its colour is between crimson and purple - deep, dark and luminous. It develops aromas of violet and small fruits (Morello cherry, blackcurrant). When older, it leans towards underbrush, fallen leaves and truffle over animal notes. In the mouth, it has a four-sided structure but its tannins are nonetheless delicate.
The attack is straightforward, acidity and chewiness are harmoniously balanced, and the finish often carries a hint of liquorice.
The name Vougeot immediately calls up the name of that famous vineyard, the Clos de Vougeot. But this village of the Côte de Nuits has other fine vineyards.
The name itself derives from that of the little river Vouge. The powerful abbey of Cîteaux established these vineyards in the 12th century and laid the foundations of their long brilliant reputation. Their claim to fame is due at least partly to the fact that, rather unusually for the Côte de Nuits, Vougeot produces white wines (Chardonnay) as well as red (Pinot Noir).The appellation was formally instituted in 1936.
The vines grow at altitudes between 240 and 280 metres. Those on the upper slopes occupy shallow brown limestone soils. The soils on the lower slopes are limestones, fine-textured marls, and clays. These plots lie very close to the northern part of the Clos de Vougeot.
Vintage description 1989 Burgundy :
The vines had exceptionally sunny weather but did not suffer from the summer drought thanks to the storms in mid-July. The harvest was early and in a good sanitary state. The yields were not always sufficiently controlled and resulted in red wines of varying quality, but generally 1989 was a great vintage. The red wines have a good level of intensity and are today characterised by their very soft tannins. There are also delightfully soft and elegant.
