A manificently fresh and wonderfully broad nose features notes of spice, black currant, sandalwood, smoke, game, earth and violets. The dense, serious, intense and muscular big-bodied flavors possess a highly appealing texture as the palate staining finish is ultra-seductive as well as spectacularly persistent. This is a wonderfully intense and potent effort that should age effortlessly for decades yet there is so much dry extract present that even in magnum format this could be enjoyed young though I am certainly not recommending it as the development potential here is nothing short of amazing.
The 2009 Clos St. Denis Cuvee Tres Vieilles Vignes, from vines planted in 1905, is a weightless, elegant wine laced with crushed raspberries, autumn leaves, licorice and subtle earthiness. The wine flows through effortlessly to the long, impeccably textured finish. Yields were a minuscule 12 hectoliters per hectare here. (AG)
