Goedhuis, December 2021
Sourced from 5 different locations in the village. A lovely selection of mulberry, morello cherry and blackberry. Poised between sweet dark fruits and intensity and structure. Focused, with a mass of firm, strong spiced flavours and granular tannins kept perfectly in check by a lively freshness on the finish.

The 2020 Vosne-Romanée Village has a slight smudged bouquet, red plum and cassis fruit. The palate is well balanced, the one-third whole bunch lending freshness, though I find its Nuits Saint-Georges counterpart has a touch more precision and charm.

Following fifteen years as winemaker at Comte Armand, Benjamin Leroux is now amongst an elite band of specialist micro-négociants setting up in the Côte D’Or. Based in Beaune, Benjamin uses his network of contacts to source only the very best fruit and, where he has contracts, likes to advise on vineyard practices to make sure that the raw material is of the highest quality. He makes wines from a broad and diverse selection of appellations, but all show a true connection to their origins.
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.
