2005 Clos Vougeot

Domaine Jacques Prieur

The finished 2005 Clos Vougeot offers surprisingly candied black raspberry and cherry aromas, with floral, carnal and mineral notes largely overwhelmed by the sheer sweetness of perfume. Formidably dense and mouth filling, it is possessed of considerable tannic chew yet persistent sweetness. Cedary, smoky, and toasty notes emerge in the finish, and suggestions of meat and stone manage to assert themselves as well. I suspect this wine will harden not too long after bottling even if a lot of superficial sweetness remains. Certainly it can scarcely be faulted for sheer concentration, although I prefer the extra measure of transparency in the Corton. Jun 2007, www.robertparker.com
