Domaine Robert Arnoux, Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 1990

Arnoux Vougeot 1990

Fullish ruby, pale rim.  Suave and perfumed, with a top-drawer toastiness.  The texture of heavy satin.  A wine of impact, exuberant with a thundering depth of iron, rôti and caramelized black fruit.  A dense and concentrated ’90 without the inscrutability: this is readable as Clos de Vougeot.  Finishes tertiary, mineralic and long.   A sexy and ferrous beast, this Clos de Vougeot.  Now – 2020+.
