Really attractive ruby color of medium intensity with real brilliance. Truly charming, slightly vanilla at first, then moving towards aromas of fresh raspberries of great purity, then notes of musk and soft spices. The mouth is sumptuous, possessing an extraordinary velvetiness. The palate is rich in aromas - red fruits, then cinnamon, then butterscotch - almost creme brulee. Almost infinite length.
"Features a roasted cherry note to the black cherry and red berry flavors, with a beam of mineral and spice. Turns elegant on the finish, revealing a lingering aftertaste of underbrush, spice and mineral. Best from 2016 through 2035. "
"40% whole clusters. This is quite densely fruited with floral and freshly turned earth aromas adding interest to the wild and medium-toned red berry fruit. The delicious, intense and serious broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration with ample amounts of dry extract that partially buffers the chewy and ripe tannins on the long and less austere than usual finish.
"The 2009 Clos de Vougeot is rich, round and sensual. Layers of ripe red fruit caress the palate in this sublime, beautifully textured Burgundy. The Clos de Vougeot is impressive for many reasons. It possesses gorgeous length and silky tannins that are quite unusual for Clos de Vougeot. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029. "
