2009 Henri Rebourseau, Clos de Vougeot, Burgundy

( ££££, 13.5%, Fine + Rare )

Bright pale garnet-ruby. Closed with some reduction and very little fruit on the nose. Hint of rhubarb on the palate, tannic with high acid. Rather scrawny, with almost Italianate levels of acidity and very little flesh or sweet fruit.  More like a 2008 than a 2009.
