Tight juicy and youthfully imploded showing the sappy structured side of this vintage in spades. Piquant acidity and the menthol medicinal notes of classic young Clos Vougeot suggest that this will enjoy a slow and graceful evolution in the bottle. Finishes with a pungent peppery suggestion that may be from the whole-cluster fermentation. Francois Labet considers 2009 to be a great long-lived balanced vintage but this is just the kind of 2008 the market will be discovering in 2020.

This is still exceptionally young and primary with a restrained nose that includes a discreet but not invisible application of wood that sets off wonderfully cool and pure aromas of red currant, earth and an interesting game hint. There is impressive size and weight to the large-scaled flavors that are blessed with excellent concentration and outstanding dry extract levels that confer a textured mouth feel to the hugely long and classically austere finish. This is a stunner of a wine that should be capable of delivering greatness in 15 to 20 years.
