Vincent Girardin Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

$129

Bright ruby-red. Scented aromas of black raspberry, rose petal, minerals, licorice and blood orange. Racy and light on its feet; not a dense style of Clos Vougeot but quite refined and perfumed. Finishes with very suave tannins and subtle aromatic persistence. I like this! Stephen Tanzer

If only I could afford more of this stuff... On the nose, you're presented with a heady cocktail of roasted nuts, cassis, earth and spice box. The palette is equally striking, with sweet cinnamon, cloves and cherries, adding layers and texture. Mid palette is still displaying a ripe tannic structure, which helps to extend the flavors and enhance its density. The wine still displays a youthful freshness which belies it 11 yrs. 13.5% abv is in alignment with all of the components. Happy Labor Day w/end to one and all.
