A pretty and softly spicy array is composed mainly by plum and dark cherry scents. There is good energy and freshness to the well-delineated middle weight flavors that possess a succulent mid-palate while offering reasonably good complexity on the persistent finish. A quality Vosne villages.
The 2016 Vosne villages is really pretty and stylish in this vintage. The excellent nose jumps from the glass in a mix of black raspberries, lovely minerality, gamebird, espresso and a stylish topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and tangy, with a lovely core of black fruit, fine soil signature, modest tannins and impressive length and grip on the poised and classy finish. A fine AC. 2021-2045.
The 2016 Vosne Romanee Villages was more backward on the nose compared to the Chambolle-Musigny, though it opens with aeration and evolves a pleasing pastille-like purity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red cherry and strawberry fruit, touches of blood orange with a precise finish. Good potential here, crisp and direct. (NM)
Bright medium red. Aromas of blackberry, licorice and crushed rock. Showing limited easy sweetness and flesh but captivating inner-mouth floral perfume and definition to its juicy flavors of dark berries and bitter chocolate. A pungent note of blood orange adds lift. A bit lean and tight in the early going--perhaps slightly hardened by the CO2 today--finishing with a firm dusting of tannins and noteworthy persistence. (ST)
From the lieu-dit of Bas Mazières, this village wine reveals aromas of dark fruit, game bird and a subtle framing of new oak, followed by a full-bodied, juicy and open-knit palate with a touch of tannic chew on the back end. This suggests either less complete ripeness or some unintegrated barrel tannin, vis-à-vis the suave Chambolle village wine. Drinking Window 2022 - 2035. (WK)
