Description
(AG=94) Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose offers crushed wild berries, cherry, cocoa powder and minerals. Thick but weightless in the mouth, with great precision to the flavors of dark cherry, raspberry, minerals and spices. In its dark fruit flavors, palate-saturating texture and sappiness, this resembles the young 2006. I find this easier to taste today than the 2005 Clos Vougeot. But the broad, serious tannins call for a decade of cellaring. (AM=91-94) A wonderfully elegant though primary and cool nose features a superbly complex blend of red, black and blue fruit aromas as well as violets, rose petals, spice and earth notes that introduce rich, textured and powerful flavors that possess good focus, punch and vibrancy on the mouth coating, austere and strikingly long finish. This is harmonious, transparent and poised. Note: from a substantial .60 ha parcel situated in Richebourg proper
