At home. Drank over 3 hours and saved a glass for day two. Pretty and elegant nose of blue and red pinot fruit, some minerals and a bit a of spice. Palate was full, elegant, creamy and airey blue fruit. Red and floral notes with a mineral backbone. Long full finish. Extremely well balanced and full for a Clos Vougeot. Anne Gros has such a pretty style.
Unexpected Lunch (Les Amis - Shaw Centre): Alcohol :: 13.5% Very bright deep ruby red with light red rim that display energetic, youthful aromas of black and blue Pinot fruits, some earthy tones and mineral that has touch of iron complexity in it. This is so bright and fresh. Full bodied, layer and layer of rich, concentrated dark and red fruits coated the palate with care, as the fruits are bright and lively. Thanks to the generous fruits that this wine possessed, it buffers off the medium level of firm, but ripe tannin and dry extract hence the very smooth, almost seamless mouth feel that is great effort for Clos Vougeot compared to those I have had before that seems rather edgy and rustic. The balance here is top class and though not highly complex in flavor, it does offer grand-cru level of depth and refinement. Some roasted herbs and mineral kick in here and leads to the medium length, juicy finish. I would say this is in between old school and modern in style, but nicely done with no excessive of oak, in fact, the oak has pretty much absorbed by the fruits. Delicious to drink now, but I would give this another 5yrs to develop more for the secondary nuances. Buy - Yes.
