2008 Alex Gambal Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru

SKU #1114779 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sweet cherry and berry aromas are accented by rose and spice in this supple, charming red, which is elegant, despite a base of muscular tannins. Features earth and mineral components on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2028. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

91-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From three barrels reflecting parcels on the top and in the middle of this famous enclave (purchased as juice, although beginning in 2009, Gambal will get some grapes) his 2008 Clos Vougeot displays intriguingly woodsy and red berry aromas, a fine sense of bright red raspberry, and vivacity and lift such as one notices in many of this vintage’s exemplars of this cru. A subtle sense of creaminess; roasted meat and marrow; and mossy, peaty hints of forest floor all convey underlying richness. This culminates in a resonant interplay of fruit and brown spices with stony, saline minerality that tugs at the salivary glands, easily inviting the next sip. It should be well worth following for at least a dozen years. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

87-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This blends both upper and lower register notes with high-toned red cherry and raspberry fruit mixing with earth and a hint of the sauvage, both of which continue onto the solidly complex but very gassy medium-bodied flavors where the structural elements appear to possess a slightly higher level of phenolic ripeness though there is a distinctly edgy finish here as well. This will require 8 to 10 years of cellar time. Inner quote mark (4/2010)
