Michel Gros ‘Grand Maupertui’ Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2009

Pinot Noir from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 04-May-2014
Very full, dark, deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is full and voluminous with bright and perfumed, ripe dark cherry and berry fruits along with plenty of spicy, toasty oak, quite bacony in expression, revealing savoury dark whole cluster elements and some funky nuances. Full-bodied, vibrantly rich, sweet dark red berry fruits and strong toasty oak flavours form a deep core. The fruit is encased by a robust structure with firm tannin grip and extraction. The fruit and extraction are well-balanced, and the wine is bold and mouthfilling, with the firm tannin line carrying the wine to a long finish. This is a robust, sweetly dark-fruited Clos de Vougeot with the structure to keep 10-12+ years. 18.5-/20 Apr 2014 RRP $254.00 From 0.2 ha in the ‘Grand Maupertui' section. Deepish ruby-red, good heart, lighter purple hues on edge. The bouquet is full and intense, initially showing dark red berry fruits with violet lift, growing to reveal savoury game elements and distinctive and penetrating charry, bacony oak. Medium-full bodied, this is very tightly bound, with juicy black fruits at the core of the palate. Fine tannins combine with brisk acidity forming a firm texture. With time in glass, funky savoury meat flavours with powerful oak open out. The finish is concentrated and dense, and quite sustained. This is a complex, multi-faceted wine, with brettanomyces and strong oak as significant components. Drink over 7-9 years. 17.5+/20 Apr 2012 RRP $254.00
