Vinous 90 points - The 2012 Bourgogne Hautes Co^tes de Nuits Le Clos du Prieure´ is a gorgeous wine at this level. Juicy and expressive, the 2012 jumps from the glass with layers of dark fruit, all supported by serious tannins and overall structure. Iron, dark red fruit and an array of ferrous notes add dimensions of complexity. Far from an easygoing Bourgogne, the 2012 Clos du Prieure´ is going to need at least a few years to soften. Today it is rich and imposing to the core.
