Allen Meadows writes in Burghound: "Generous if not completely dominant wood still allows the cool red and blue pinot fruit to reveal itself. The stony, precise, ripe and fleshy medium-bodied flavors possess excellent intensity and length. Again, the wood should integrate in time as there appears to be a sufficiency of mid-palate concentration."
In his own words, Vincent Mugneret summarized the 2009 vintage perfectly, “ Overall, I really like the quality of the ‘09s because not only are they excellent but there is a tenderness to the wines that makes them very appealing.’ This comes from 40+ year old vines in one of those great Vosne ‘adjacent’ spots (this one abuts Grand Cru La Romanee). Red and blue fruits laced with a good dose of vanillan oak, round and sweet in the mouth but medium weight and elegant. Vosne spiciness is evident but there is some minerality as well. A Burghound 89-92, this one isn’t ‘cheap’ by any means, but its certainly more than reasonable to get something this good from this kind of neighborhood.
