2009 Alain Hudelot-Noëllat, Clos de Vougeot, Burgundy

( ££££, 13.5%, Fine + Rare )

Very pale garnet/pink, verging on a rosé in hue. The alcohol is a little prominent on the nose, but there’s good acidity and some texture too. The fruit is a tad over-ripe and confected, but the tannins are gentle, the flavours palate-caressingly sweet.
