IWC 93
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, August 2011
Bright full yellow. Rather shut down on the nose hinting at orange peel nutmeg and minerals. Denser and more savory than the "regular" Clos but at the same time silkier (the vines here are older).

Denser and more savory than the "regular" Clos but at the same time silkier (the vines here are older). A stronger oak element contributes to the impression of breadth and dryness. More bracing on the long finish than the thick palate suggests with a piquant note of pineapple. I'd give this very rich and saline wine a few years to absorb some of its oak.

This is quite similar to the regular cuvée save for the fact that the fruit component is slightly riper. Otherwise there are the same rich full-bodied and serious flavors that possess excellent mid-palate density and the same powerful driving and persistent finish. This is notably bigger than the regular cuvée yet not inelegant and one that should age well in the context of the vintage.

It turns positively explosive on the palate with intense yellow stone fruit minerals flowers and oak. This is a decidedly round voluminous style shaped by the 45% oak. I am not sure it will be a particularly long-lived wine but it will deliver plenty of enjoyment over the coming years. The Clos des Hospices was aged 45% in oak. As is the custom with this bottling the percentage of newer barrels is higher than in the straight Les Clos. The 2010 seems inherently better suited to the oak than the 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. -AG
