Domaine de la Vougeraie Clos Vougeot 2010, 1.5L (BH93, WA93-95, ST92, WS93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine de la Vougeraie Clos Vougeot

1.5L

Vintage: 2010
Region: France--Burgundy--Red
Appellation: Vougeot, Cote de Nuits

BH93, WA93-95, ST92, WS93
Rated 93 points by the Burghound: `(from an exceptionally well positioned 1 ha parcel situated directly beneath Les Petits Musigny that is combined with another less well located .35 ha parcel close to the main road). This is also quite restrained and brooding with somber aromas of wild red currant, cherry, pungent earth and distinct floral scents. There is plenty of verve and power to the equally brooding, dense and well-muscled flavors that possess ripe and very firm supporting tannins and outstanding length though it can`t match the Mazoyeres for sheer depth`More info about this producer from the Burghound: `Winemaker Pierre Vincent described 2011 as having `such an early warm and hot start to the growing season that we originally thought that we might start harvesting around the 20th of August! One of the interesting aspects of the vintage is that the bunches were formed under conditions of hydric stress and thus they were quite small with very good ratios of solids to liquids. A cool, wet and cloudy July and half of August however slowed things down to the point where we actually started picking in the Cote de Beaune on the 31st of August and then we attached the Cote de Nuits on the 2nd of September. While there was some sorting necessary the overall condition of the fruit was very clean and almost as importantly the stalks were very clean too. There was an excellent level of phenolic maturity but with only moderate potential alcohols that averaged around 12%. The acidities were on the below average side and the post-malo pHs came in around 3.65, which is higher than is typical with our wines. Because of the clean stalks and excellent level of phenolic maturity I decided to use about the same percentage of whole clusters this year as I did in 2010, which ranged between 30 and 80%. I did a 21 day cuvaison along with our usual vinification. Despite the fact that the wines are not technically textbook from a sugar and acidity standpoint I really like them as they are very terroir and because they`re quite well-balanced they should drink well young plus age well too if that`s what our clients want.` I have noted several times that Vincent is really pushing the Vougeraie wines in the right direction as I was impressed with the quality of both the ?11s and the ?10s as both outperform the quality of their respective vintages.`
