Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Petits Monts

2017

One of the best Premier Cru in Vosne-Romanée, this site is directly above La Romanée Conti and Richebourg. Because of the steepness of the slope, it must be farmed by hand. This is the second vintage of this wine.

(91-93) points
",,,matured in 40% new oak and includes 20% whole bunches (Amélie Berthaut wanted more, but there was insufficient space in the tanks). This is plowed by horse since the vineyard is too steep to use a tractor. It has quite an intense bouquet, perhaps not quite as detailed as the Lavaut Saint-Jacques, opening with crushed violet petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and saline in the mouth, leading to a finely tuned, lightly spiced and quite persistent finish. This is very promising."
