2009 Louis Jadot, Clos de Vougeot, Burgundy

( ££££, 13.5%, Fine + Rare )

Pale ruby/pink with a hint of garnet. This is a rather light wine (delicacy is no bad thing in 2009), but it’s showing far too much oak for the weight of fruit. Chewy and firm, the wine lacks finesse. The barrels have swallowed the fruit.
