Rene Mure Pinot Noir Clos Saint Landelin 2009

Rene Mure Pinot Noir Clos Saint Landelin 750ml 2009      
Sku: 1757343*

Located in Rouffach, in the South of Alsace, the Clos Saint Landelin, monopoly of the Muré family, covers 15 hectares. It’s situated at the southern end of the grand cru Vorbourg. Its steep south facing slopes are cultivated in terraces. The soil is clay and limestone with a lot of stones. The subsoil is made of calcareous sandstone from the Bajocien and calcareous conglomerates from the Oligocene. The vineyard is in organic farming

Bright, pale-medium red. Peppery strawberry and cherry on the nose, lifted by floral and minty nuances. Juicy, leanish and dry, but with an energetic, refreshing quality to the red cherry, spice, mint and herb flavors. The lightly tannic finish offers good grip and length. This is already an attractive drink. These vines are planted in a steep, stony clay-and-limestone vineyard facing south.
From barrel, the Mure 2009 Pinot Noir Clos St.-Landelin smells and tastes of smoked meats, bitter-edged dark berries, and medicinal herbs, with spicy, toasty overtones from barrel. An underlying sense of crushed stone conveys a certain sense of austerity vis-a-vis the two less-expensive Mure Pinots of the vintage, but the tannins are fine and the finishing fruit still satisfyingly persistent. This should remain handsome for at least a decade, based on how past installments have evolved. While these slopes were rendering seriously ripe and ambitiously-vinified Pinots already in the mid 1980s - and an experimental plantation of Syrah was approved in 2010! - it’s a relief to find that even in a vintage as inherently generous as 2009 this wine harvested already on August 31 is neither overweight nor (at 13.8% to be exact) alcoholically challenged.

Food pairing
Pair with red meat, duck, pigeon or game.
