2009 Château Genot-Boulanger, Clos de Vougeot, Burgundy

( ££££, 13.5%, Fine + Rare )

Mid garnet with a pinkish rim. Ginger spice and some reduction on the nose: smoky, well balanced and structured. The wine is both jammy and a teeny bit reduced on the palate, but it’s sustained by fresh acidity and medium weight tannins. It should age, but the alcohol may start to dominate in bottle.
