PRANZO DA VINOGODI: Perfetto figlio dell' annata (a mio avviso) straordinaria. Acidulo, austero, purissimo. Frutti rossi e verdi, non ancora maturi. Bocca di medio corpo, soffusa purezza al laser, asciutta, diamantata. Permettetemi di dire.... alla Ca' d' Morissio 2008!
Brought to Lieffroy, DK. Not at all on it's top yet. Quite green and a bit out of harmony to start with. Little strawberries and raspberries plus a good deal of spices, oak, sous bois and saffran. Enjoyable but should perform better I think.
Blind. I've never understood the praise of Clos St Jacques, and this blind tasting only confirmed it. Admittedly super young, but it struck me as oaky and disjointed. Also up against much more mature competition from Grand Cru vineyards. I just think I'm not a CSJ man, so take my review with a grain of salt.
