RATINGS

89-91Robert M. Parker Jr.

...is bridled with an attractive, refined, floral bouquet with lifted dark cherry and bergamot fruit infused with minerals. It is tightly wound at the moment of course but it is sure to unfurl in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied...

89-91Vinous / IWC

Pure aromas and flavors of cassis, blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Dense and silky in the mouth, but with very good energy and sappy sweetness. Seriously chewy wine with good stuffing.

...very cool red and black pinot fruit leads to markedly finer middle weight flavors that brim with a lovely minerality. There is plenty of verve to the saline-inflected finish that is shaped by ripe and sophisticated tannins.

17Jancis Robinson

Rich dark fruit aroma and spice. Pretty oaky on the palate. Tightly but finely structured.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanee

Vosne-Romanée is the most prestigious appellation in Burgundy. Its 449 acres of vineyards are in and around the village of Vosne-Romanée and they include renowned Grand Cru vineyards which produce some of the world’s most coveted – and costly —wines. The Grands Crus are Richebourg, La Romanée, Romanée-Conti, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and La Tâche. The Grand Crus Échezeaux and Grands- Échezeaux are actually located in the neighboring village of Flagey-Échezeaux, but legally they can be sold under the Vosne-Romanée appellation. There are also seventeen Premier Crus in Vosne-Romanée. Wine writer Clive Coates has called Vosne-Romanée “the greatest Pinot Noir village on earth” and notes that the appellation’s style “is for wines which are rich, austere, sensual, masculine and aristocratic.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
