Neal Martin, January 2019,
The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Village is the only Village Cru this year - expect a separate La Colombière bottling in 2018. Matured in 20% new oak, it has a very seductive dark cherry and boysenberry bouquet that opens up nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit and good body and density for a Village Cru, plus a touch of spicebox and tobacco on the finish. Very fine. 88-90 points.
Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg
Family run domaine with sisters Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée Mugneret at the helm. They make beautifully pure and elegant and Pinot Noirs.
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.
