Vosne-Romanée

2017

The wine is made from a blend of several different vineyards: Les Communes, Les Saules and Les Bossières. The soils of these parcels are all very similar- clay and lime mixed with marl- and all enjoy a full eastern exposure. The average age of the vines is about 50 years old. 80% whole-cluster fermentation and 10% new oak. Wow! Structured, fine tannins and incredible complexity.

89-91 points
"Aromatically the nose possesses a similar fruit profile but it's notably spicier. There is also a bit more concentration to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a more refined mouthfeel before terminating in a saline and lingering finish. The refinement is mostly due to the dense but fine tannins and this should age well for its level."
