    Clos Vougeot 2008
    Bottle (6)

    "Moderately saturated medium red with a faintly amber edge. Showing more dried fruits, soil, mint and herbs than primary fruit on the nose but with bracing acidity providing lift. Totally different in style from the 2009, this silky, fine-grained midweight is shot through with energy and salty minerality. Though firmly built, it's surprisingly harmonious today. Marie-Andrée described 2008 as "the frontier between the problems we had with insufficient acidity in some earlier vintages and the good balance we have today." She went on: "It's the first vintage where we really saw the effects of our work in the vineyards." The Mugneret sisters also carried out a gentle extraction for this wine and the malolactic fermentation was long and late. Incidentally, this vintage had the highest natural acidity of any in the tasting. Finishes lively and persistent, with dusty tannins." (93 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Oct. 2019)
