A backdrop of oak sets off the wonderfully expressive, airy, cool and very pure black pinot fruit, plum, violet and anise nuances. There is a firm minerality to the refined, precise and racy flavors that terminate in a linear, saline-infused and highly persistent finish where the wood resurfaces on the linear finish. This is an elegant and understated wine of finesse yet one that should repay up to a decade of cellaring. In a word, lovely. Try from 2021+
Sylvain Cathiard’s 2011 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru aux Reignots, tasted blind in a line-up of 2011 Amoureuses in Holland, reveals a clear color as well as a gorgeous bouquet that is pure and seductive, quite floral in style, with very fine delineation and mineralite. This is generous at the moment, a little showy and seductive but not as nuanced or as complex as the 2010. The palate is medium-bodied and quite chewy in the mouth. There is good extraction here although it is missing finesse toward the finish. Tasted June 2014. (NM)
Good medium red. Stony aromas of raspberry, licorice and graphite. Fresh, juicy and youthfully medicinal, with good energy to its tight flavors of dark cherry, raspberry, flowers and fresh herbs. Showing less personality today than the Aux Murgers, this premier cru will need time in bottle to blossom. (ST)
