Very scented black fruit but also some wild spices and a silky texture with a savoury finish.
Black cherry, spice and earth flavors are matched to a dense structure here, with concentration and subtle power building up to the finish. (BS)
Like several of the wines in the range the nose is a markedly pungent combination of wood toast and reduction that renders it impossible to assess. Otherwise there is a more refined mouth feel to the slightly less concentrated medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a velvety, dusty and palate coating finale that is a bit less structured.
The 2014 Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Clos des Réas comes from Michel's triangular, walled monopole towards the south of the village. It has a slight stemminess on the nose that is nicely defined, very natural, the fruit black rather than red, evolving a light marine accent with time. The palate is energetic and tensile on the entry with blackcurrant, raspberry and a touch of bitter lemon towards the chalky textured finish. This is quite a complex Clos des Réas this year from Michel and one I look forward to revisiting once in bottle. (NM)
