From purchased must, the Camille Giroud 2008 Clos Vougeot unites roasted red meats, Szechuan pepper, burley tobacco, and cooked blackberry in a corpulent, muscular style of red Burgundy, with fine skeletal posture but also imposing meat on its bones.

Pliant, sweet and minerally, but with the wine's new oak component currently masking its underlying fruit. Ultimately suave in texture but tightens up on the back end and finishes with serious tannins and an iron flavor.
