Jacques Prieur Clos Vougeot 2009
" ...ripe nose that includes floral elements to the red currant and black berry fruit aromas. Thereis excellent density to the quite serious, brooding and concentrated medium weight plus flavors that exude plenty of dry extract that buffers the otherwise very firm yet fine tannins that add to the mild finishing austerity on the explosively long finish...92-94" BH 5/11 "Medium red. Pure, bright but reticent aromas of black cherry, menthol, licorice and wild herbs; very Clos Vougeot! Silky on entry, then fresh and firm, with black cherry, mineral and soil flavors held in check by a strong tannic spine. A bit foursquare today, with a structure that reminded me of cabernet.
