RATINGS

91The Wine Advocate

...laden with sumptuous redcurrant, fresh strawberry and pomegranate scents. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with generous succulent red berry fruit, fine weight in the mouth with a cohesive, confident finish...

89-91Stephen Tanzer

Very spicy, slightly exotic aromas of black cherry, lavender and garrigue. A step up in fruit intensity from the foregoing samples, with solid minerality adding to the impression of structure.

89-91Burghound.com

The medium-bodied flavors possess a cool and admirably pure mouth character with a seductive mouth feel as there is plenty of structure-buffering dry extract that coats the mouth on the impressively long finish.

REGION

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

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, AOC (AC)

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.
