Domaine Vincent Girardin, Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru 1998

Full cherry red color.   Succulent,  rich, oaky nose: black cherry, soil, dark roast coffee, barrel toast.   The oak is not excessive; it is very much in harmony with the fruit.  Fat and impressively textured in the mouth: this has true grand cru concentration to the black fruit character here.  Firm but ripe tannins.  Composed and nicely generous at the end.  A modern, stylish grand cru.  A fine bottle.  Now – 2023.
