DescriptionDomaine de la Vougeraie Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru, Cote de Beaune, France 2009
WINE ADVOCATEThe 2009 Corton le Clos du Roi is pure elegance. It boasts gorgeous intensity in its fruit while retaining a gracious, mid-weight personality. This is another wine that captures the best qualities of the year in its silky, super-refined personality. Sweet floral notes add lift on the finish and serve to balance the intensity of the fruit. Winemaker Pierre Vincent used 30% whole clusters here. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.
BOUGHOUNDA discreet application of wood easily allows the fresh, earthy, herbal tea and sauvage-scented nose of red and dark pinot fruit to shine. As one would expect the big-bodied flavors possess plenty of size, weight and punch along with solid power and mid-palate concentration that adds to the appeal of the beautifully long and mouth coating finish. This is not particularly complex at present but there is so much development potential in evidence that much more should appear with time in bottle and my rating assumes that it will.
