As it usually is this is slightly more elegant with its airy, cool and layered nose that is also quite spicy and even more floral with good freshness to the fruit that runs more toward the red side of the spectrum. The middle weight flavors possess a feeling of restraint along with excellent vibrancy, all wrapped in a fuller and slightly more powerful finish that offers up an interesting note of dried orange peel. Sweet spot Outstanding.
The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
