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.

1983 Haegelen-Jayer Clos de Vougeot

Quite a nice drink from a poorly-regarded vintage in Burgundy. The color was light but still violet. The nose had attractive cherry and spice but faded quickly. There were tart cherry and cranberry fruits evident along with cured meat notes. The wine had crisp acidity and paired nicely with food. A surprise.
