2009 Domaine d'Eugenie Clos De Vougeot Grand Cru
Background floral notes combine with ripe, earthy, somber and notably serious aromas that lead to dense, powerful and tautly muscular flavors that brim with an amazing amount of tannin-buffering dry extract, all wrapped in a velvety, firm and linear finish. This is genuinely sensational and one of the very best examples of the appellation in the 2009 vintage though I hasten to point out that patience will be required. Drink 2024+.
