J.J. Confuron Clos Vougeot 2006




(“almost 100% new oak) Deep red-ruby. Very ripe plum and chocolate aromas hint at surmaturite Sweet, suave and a bit high-toned in the mouth, with superripe flavors of crushed dark fruits and chocolate. Plenty of density and volume here but this seems almost exaggerated today. The lush tannins arrive late. This is 13.6% alcohol, with a pH of 3.65; the rest of these ’06s are between 3.48 and 3.55. Seems ready to bottle right now.
