Mild reduction masks the underlying fruit but not the spice nuances that can also be found on the velvety, round and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that deliver very solid depth and persistence on the lively finish. This is at once very Vosne in character with supporting tannins that are slightly finer than usual.
The 2016 Vosne-Romanée from Domaine Méo-Camuzet is also an outstanding example of its level, offering up a very refined and vibrant bouquet of black raspberries, plums, dark chocolate, a fine base of soil, vanillin oak and a lovely topnote of fresh nutmeg. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nicely transparent in personality, with a fine core of fruit, moderate tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. Lovely. 2021-2050.
Bright medium red. Aromas of cherry and raspberry complemented by torrefaction notes of chocolate and espresso. Intensely flavored and vibrant in the mouth, with cherry and spice flavors lifted by flowers and a hint of fresh herbs. This very juicy village wine finishes with brisk notes of flowers and spices.

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Village comes from parcels in the lieux-dits of Aux Communes and Au Bas de Combe and matured in 30% new oak. It was showing a touch of reduction on the nose, but underneath resides attractive brambly black fruit laced with violet and iris. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh opening, a Vosne that is nimble on its toes, not a deep and concentrated Vosne-Romanée but there is satisfying precision on the finish. Fine. (NM)
