2009 Gaston & Pierre Ravaut, Ladoix 1er Le Bois Roussot
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is an interesting thing – this reminds me of a 2005, I think that’s my first time ever with a 2009! Concentrated fruit – essence of raspberry – some high-toned, slightly alcoholic notes and dried herbs. Cool and concentrated with plenty of acidity, though far from too much. The flavour lingers on a (very) dark red fruit note. Relatively narrow in the mid-palate but with decent intensity, only a medium-plus (or so) length, but overall this is a quality wine – and did I mention the price…(?)
Rebuy – Yes
And it’s been a little while, so ‘un-petit-peut-de‘ 2009 mini-hype for you.
