"This estate has changed a lot since 2005. The positive effects of biodynamic farming are now fully paying: this wine has an incredible level of overall energy. In this 2009 vintage, a very small yield of 15hl/ha caused by hail further raises the sensation of density and depth. This wine has 14.25° alcohol level similarly to last years vintage at the same time and has not yet finished its malolactic fermentation. I have tasted four different samples which got blended in front of me from equal volumes. This wine showed a black color, a profound nose that performs both fresh and fine yet has never seemed so precise despite not entirely finalized. On the palate, the wine is distinguished by its opulence along with its woven character where juicy and pulpy expressions echo to each others. This Clos Puy Arnaud is deep, melting, elongated and very tasty. It finishes very long. Once again, congratulations to Thierry Valette. This 2009 vintage is better than 2005. Take note that given the non stable character of this wine, it is recommended to taste it directly at the estate better than anywhere else."
