..spice and red berry fruit aromas nuanced by both hints of soy & hoisin that complement perfectly the pure, refined, minerally and intense flavors where the complexity of the nose resurfaces on the mineral-driven, linear & driving finish.

90-93Stephen Tanzer

...Lush, broad and dry, with firm acidity currently keeping the flavors under wraps. This conveys strong minerality but is very tight today. Finishes with a solid tannic structure.

Aromatic spiced red fruit. Lovely lift even at this young age. Deep and very fine tannins, beautifully managed so they are hardly visible yet they support the fruit perfectly.

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, 1er (Premier) Cru

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.
