2009 Hubert Chauvenet-Chopin, Clos de Vougeot, Burgundy

( ££££, 13.5%, Fine + Rare )

Mid ruby/garnet. Smoky, oak-dominated nose that is still  closed at present. There’s a hint of volatility here, but it adds a lift to the sweet, concentrated fruit. The wine is a little over-ripe and jammy, but it has hidden depths.
