Arguably the most famous wine village in the world and the undisputed star of the Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée is the ultimate combination of elegance and power.
The Pinot Noir vines here are over 40 years old, hand-harvested and carefully sorted with a cold pre-ferment lasting up to 5 days. Fermentation then takes place under controlled temperature for around 3 weeks before ageing in a combination of new (30%) and second use oak barrels for 16 months.
An exquisite wine, already (in 2019) showing impressive maturity and flavour development. Garnet towards brick red in colour, with an orangey tinge towards the rim, the nose is redolent of forest floor, leather, dried meat and cigar box, backed up by vibrant red fruits, violets and other floral notes. With a depth and concentration belying its light colour, the palate is dense and layered, a seamless combination of warm summer berries, cherries, violets, leather, game, cigar box, smoked meats and wild herbs, with an ethereal balance and finely polished structure.
Will cellar for 20 years from vintage. Serve at 12-14 degrees and don’t bother food matching, this is the star.
