Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92 (2009 Jan.)

A discreet, even reticent nose of earthy and very fresh dark berry fruit evinces a subtle sauvage character that continues onto the big and sleekly muscled flavors that are concentrated and mouth coating, all wrapped in a the classically austere young Clos de Vougeot finish that delivers excellent length. This is a serious effort that is balanced and should age extremely well though it will require ample patience.

Vinous - Score: 90+ (2009 Mar.)

Medium red. Redcurrant and smoke on the shy nose. Sweet but tight on the palate, with flavors of redcurrant, graphite, minerals and tobacco currently dominated by the wine's structure. This appears to have put on weight since I tasted it from the barrel last year.
