2008 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Le Grand Maupertui, Anne Gros
This has a “broad” bouquet that displays good intensity with raspberry, strawberry and a touch of cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, quite savoury and peppery in style, nice weight though lacking a little delineation and tension though picking up on the pert, dark cherry and bergamot finish. It improves greatly one I return later on and perusing my previous notes, I think this is just at an awkward stage post-bottling.
