2009 Frédéric Magnien, Clos de Vougeot, Burgundy

( ££££, 13.5%, Fine + Rare )

Light, mid garnet. Slightly cloudy. Smoky oak is prominent on both the nose and palate, but there’s a lot matter and texture to soak it up. Red fruits, savoury tannins, fresh acidity and good ageing potential. But less new oak would have been welcome.
