Clos Vougeot Arnoux-Lachaux 2010 (750ml)
91-94 BH 91-93 IWC
"Good bright red. Fresh, pure nose offers dark cherry, licorice and wild herbs. Dense and sappy in the mouth, with perfumed flavors similar to the aromas. Elegant and nicely balanced. Mounts slowly on the youthful, firm back end, finishing with lovely aromatic persistence. This is really packed with fruit...91-93" IWC 1/12 "Here too there is mild reduction that does not completely hide the subtle aromas of red berry fruit, crushed herbs, earth and a hint of the sauvage that continues onto the intense, robust and powerful flavors that are underpinned by relatively fine tannins on the moderately austere, linear and persistent finish of impeccable balance...91-94" BH 1/12 "The 2010 Clos Vougeot from Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux has better stuffing than the Chaumes to stand up to its new wood, but also a full one hundred percent new lumber to bear. The nose carries its wood better than the above, offering up scents of cherries, plums, bonfires, game and aggressively spicy new (Taransaud?) oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, muddled on the attack (was this recently racked- no one has indicated this to be the case!), with a respectable core of fruit, and plenty of uncovered oak tannins currently sticking out and drying the finish. There is some depth of fruit here, so maybe the wood will integrate a bit better down the road. The best-case (and perhaps far-fetched) scenario for this wine is for it to absorb its new wood tannins on the backend and end up a rather fruit-driven, but respectable example of Clos Vougeot. If this happens, the upper end of the range will be appropriate for this wine, but this is by no means a certainty at this point in time..." JG 06/12
