A really attractive combination of dark berry fruit and Vosne spice that extends to the more concentrated and delicious middle weight flavors that offer slightly better depth and intensity on the admirably long finish. A quality villages that is worth a look.
The Bizot 2006 Vosne-Romanee Vieilles Vignes -- like his simplest Vosne, originating in parcels east of the village -- continues the confectionary cast of that bottling, here with dark cherry, vanilla, caramel, and resin predominating. Musky floral notes and brown spices add Vosne-typical allure. As in the basic bottling, a tart edge to the fruit helps alleviate the impression of sweetness and also serves for some invigoration in an impressively clinging finish. This boasts more substantiality, but at the same time a bit of the charm that comes from polish and buoyancy is lost, and the oak needs to integrate. I would try holding this for 2-3 years and then plan on a comparable period of enjoyment. (DS)
