1995 Haegelen-Jayer Clos Vougeot

Alfred Haegelen married Madeleine, a niece of the great Henri Jayer. His wines are restrained and long-lasting. Clos Vougeot is the largest (50.59 ha) grand cru in the Côte-de-Nuits, but the quality of wines from this vineyard vary greatly due to the large number of owners and the placement of their respective blocks in the vineyard. · Quite pleasing with a charming toast note to the aromas, lively tart cherry flavors, a silky texture, and plenty of length and acidity on the thoroughly enjoyable finish.
