Capitain Gagnerot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Burgundy France, 2015, 750

 

Deep Garnet,

Black Cherry, rose petals, minerals, wet earth, game, cured meat, smoke, with just a touch of vanilla on the nose.

Dense, youthful, and persistent on the palate which closely follows the nose with around 15 layers unfolding in the mid given a bit of patience. The acid and tannin are enough to blind the fruit, you will miss it if you are not paying enough attention. Long (30 second plus) linear finish.

After the phylloxera crisis wich ravaged the Burgundian vineyard from the 1870s the the 1880s, Marie then widowed, decides to keep the domaine and to replant it vines. The succession is since made from father to son.

After the Second World War, Roger Capitain inherits 3 hectares of vineyards and a wine trade. His two sons, Patrice and Michel, take over the domaine upon his retirement.

Today, the domaine comprise 16 hectares of vineyards in full ownership, and it is Pierre-François and Delphine, Patrice’s children, who now oversee its destiny, supported by their spouses.
