2009 Red Burgundies (Mar 2012)

Bright medium red. Distinctly mineral-driven aromas of raspberry, wild strawberry, clove and pepper. Sweet, fine-grained and vibrant, showing lovely delicacy and finesse to the cherry and spice flavors. The long finish features very suave, fine-grained tannins and terrific chewy energy for the year. (Trapet has reduced the percentage of new oak for this wine to 40%.)
