"This is the last vintage of this wine to come entirely from a block of vines planted in 1910, and the last to be labeled Vieilles Vignes de Plus de 100 Ans, as François Labet is beginning a replanting program; beginning with 2015, this wine will come from several of Labet's holdings around the Clos and will simply be called Vieilles Vignes): Bright ruby-red. Lovely mineral and peony high notes lift dark fruits on the nose. Sappy, dense and penetrating, offering terrific concentration and lift to its flavors of dark berries, licorice and minerals. A superb vintage for this wine, less austere than some previous years. "We're coming from an era of cooler soils to warmer soils," noted Labet. "Global warming has been very good for Clos-Vougeot." This thick but energetic wines finishes with suave but serious building tannins and superb length. Incidentally, there was no separate Hommage bottling in 2014."

94 points Wine Spectator

"A suave red, with some power, offering earth-toned cherry and plum flavors lined by a firm base of tannins. Spice and iron elements peek through as this winds down on the long finish. Fine intensity. Best from 2021 through 2032."
