2009 Vincent Girardin, Clos de Vougeot, Burgundy

( ££££, 13.5%, Fine + Rare )

Youthful mid garnet/ruby. Made in a very aromatic, modern style, that might be OTT to some. It’s got quite a bit of grip and tanni, with lots of flashy oak and ripe, sweet fruit. I’d like fewer splinters, but this is still an ambitious wine.
