2009 François Gerbet, Clos de Vougeot, Burgundy

( ££££, 13.5%, Fine + Rare )

Mid ruby/garnet. There’s some slightly off-putting reduction on the nose here, that’s emphasised by the smoky oak. The wine finishes with high acidity and not enough friut. In short, it’s out of kilter. Or was when I tasted it.
