The Beaune Tuvilains 1er cru 2009 from Domaine Bertrand Ambroise is showing both the good and the slightly problematic side of the 2009 vintage. The bouquet shows very ripe .. slightly overripe .. notes with plum, cassis, cherries and a quite substantial oak impression. On the palate quite focused with a good cocentration and length. The oak is offering good support for the – in my view -slightly overripe sweet fruit. The result is surprisingly fresh and balanced. In total a nice wine, with a good focus despite the somewhat hot character of the fruit. A wine for fans of the 2009 vintage …. and very much drinkable even for 2010 supporters like me!
