A discreetly spicy and appealingly elegant nose reflects notes of fresh purple fruit, violet and a hint of sandalwood. There is lovely delineation and verve to the lighter weight, delicious and attractively textured flavors that deliver fine depth and length on the dusty and well-balanced finale.
Bright, dark red. Attractive lift to the raspberry and floral aromas; this could hardly be more different from the village Gevrey. At once dense and creamy-sweet, conveying very good energy to the dark berry and floral flavors. Finishes bright and long, with substantial ripe, dusty tannins. Cheurlin produced just 29 hectoliters per hectares here, owing to the estate's high percentage of old vines.(ST)
The 2015 Vosne AC from Domaine Georges Noëllat seems quite a bit riper on nose than the Gevrey villages bottling, but this is only thirteen percent alcohol. The complex bouquet is a ripe blend of backed raspberries and cherries, Vosne spice tones, chocolate, gamebird, soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and already quite plush on the attack, with a deep core, suave backend tannins and a long, velvety finish. This is good, but does not quite have the same freshness and precision of the Gevrey “en Champs”. 2016-2035.
The 2015 Vosne-Romanée Village, matured in 40% new oak, offers ripe kirsch and redcurrant scents on the nose, hints of honey and marmalade indicative of what was a warm growing season. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin. There is impressive body and weight, although I would be seeking more finesse and delineation towards the finish by the time of bottling. It is a little sinewy at the moment, but it should gain more complexity with bottle age.(NM)
