There is enough reduction to mask the fruit but not the subtle spice and sandalwood hints; even so I would recommend decanting this if you're going to try a bottle upon release. There is good richness to the fleshy and round middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the balanced finale where a touch of wood appears. This succulent yet sleek effort is quite forward and could easily be enjoyed young. A blend of 1/3 Les Vigneux and 2/3 declassified fruit from the lower portion of the Aux Brûlées.
14 casks. 20% new. All destemmed. Vigneaux and the bottom bit of Brûlées because they don’t reckon it’s up to premier cru standard – a little bit rustic, and all the young vines – up to eight years. Sumptuous nose. Really quite rich and sweet. Then it falls away a little on the palate but it will delight drinkers in the relatively short term. Fine tannins on the very end. Oodles of charm.
The 2014 Vosne-Romanée Village, which had been racked three weeks prior to my visit and matured in three new barrels out of fourteen, is a blend of 'Les Vigneux' and the bottom half of Les Brûlées augmented by the domaine's younger vines. It has a surprisingly precocious nose with black cherry and a touch of cassis fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe tannin, moderate acidity, quite fleshy for a 2014 with a red cherry and soy-tinged finish. (NM)
Pretty, light red Slightly reduced aromas of cranberry and boysenberry Juicy and firm-edged, showing a slight musky reduction but good tension to its rather light red berry flavors More salty than fruity today, finishing with a light touch and hints of leather and game. (ST)
