Tasting Notes

Bottled and tasted at the Domaine. The Clos Vougeot has a more tertiary bouquet, a little reticent compared to Anne's other 2009s. There is a hint of something exotic like Turkish Delight or coconut, but it does not want to come out at the moment. The palate is very well balanced, dominated by new oak at the moment (80% and the rest is one-year old) but with ample fruit on the finish. I would leave this 3-4 years to let that oak subsume into the wine. Fine. Tasted January 2011.

Score: 92Neal Martin,, March 2011

Noticeable wood fights a bit with the otherwise solidly complex and earthy red berry fruit nose that precedes supple, round and very generous medium-bodied flavors that are remarkably sweet and while the mid-palate is accessible, this manages to be a bit firmer than the Echézeaux. That said, in the context of the overall appellation's performance in 2009, this too is relatively soft.

Score: 89/91Allen Meadows, (41), January 2011
