2009 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancMar. 2011
High tones of grapefruit above toasted bread. Good sweetness that’s balanced by well-judged acidity – this is quite lovely – simply, but lovely.
2007 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancApr. 2010
There is width but not too much density to the aromas. Ripe and a little fat. This is good but doesn’t get the pulse racing.
2005 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancApr. 2007
Wide, ripe and fresh nose – this was, like the red, already bottled in September. The palate is plump, ripe and just a little exotic. Good length and quite some interest, but for my table I’d like a little more freshness.
2004 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancApr. 2007
It’s a fresher and for my taste much more interesting nose. Nicely textured and again quite plump, though just a little sleeker than the 2005. There’s a nice burst of concentration on the mid-palate and a good finish. I’d still like a twist more of acidity, but this is anyway very nice.
2003 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancApr. 2007
The nose is much more understated than the 2005 – less obviously ‘ripe’ too. There’s the same opulent and quite rich palate – almost oily – the flavours really cling to your palate. This is surprisingly long. The plump family resemblance is in place, but this is quite well balanced for a 2003. Almost good in the context of the vintage
2002 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancApr. 2007
The nose is quite different to those that went before, honey and kiwi fruit – it’s super in a rather exotic way. Lots of things are happening on the palate, this is certainly the most complex and interesting wine – if less typical in style.
2001 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancApr. 2007
This has a nice, fresh, perhaps more typical nose. The palate shows richness but for the first time the level of acidity to suit my taste. It’s less complex than the 2002 – perhaps younger showing – very nice wine.
2000 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancApr. 2007
Gunflint, sweet fruit and waxy notes m ark a lovely and interesting nose. The palate is rich and has almost enough acidity for me. Nicely complex, I see this as a wine that could pair superbly with the right dish – a very good wine.
1999 Vougeraie, Vougeot Clos de la Prieuré BlancApr. 2007
A wide and quite young showing chardonnay nose with just a faint caramel edge but little other development. Sweet and soft, concentrated with almost good acidity and sweetly long. No rush to drink this young showing wine.
