2009 David Clark, Côte de Nuits Villages
Only a hint more than medium colour. I’ve come to expect a bit of stubborn background reduction in David Clark’s wines but there’s not even a hint of it here; a little toasted bread (more like a white). In the mouth this is forward, fresh and quite intense. The flavours have a bit of the floral about them, the red fruit being far from the 09 vernacular of overtly ripe and sweet. Just a hint of oak flavour in the finish too. This is a wine that drinks quite well now but I suspect it will be on another level in 6-12 months. Very accomplished.
Rebuy – Yes

    Bingo ! Thanks Bill, bought this en primeur as my first DC wine & the case was delivered to my storage recently. Note your comment on 6-12 months but any views on a wider / longer drinking window ?

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
