Tasting notes

27/01/2011

Mathieu Mangenot's winemaking gets better and better with every vintage. For my taste buds he used to favour a bit too much lees stirring but with the 2009 vintage, as it is quite a ripe vintage, he has held back, and it shows in the glass. Moutonne is of course a bit of an anomaly, as it is not actually a grand cru in its own right, but a 2.35 hectare plot that is part of Vaudésir and Preuses. The wine is beautifully balanced, ripe and rounded, with good acidity, with the concentration and weight you'd expect from a grand cru, but not too heavy, just beautifully harmonious. And with plenty of ageing potential.Drink 2014%u20132019. (18 points)
