The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Cros Parantoux is blessed with a riveting bouquet armed with copious red and black fruit, wilted violets and rose petals. The aromatics are multi-dimensional with beguiling flair and precocity without feeling a mote overpowering. The quality of the terroir really comes through on the palate: quite dense yet very refined, almost symmetrical in terms of focus with blood orange infusing the layers of red berry fruit on the structured finish. This is a wine that delivers...and then some. (NM)
Moderate wood sets off the very dense, ripe and fresh nose of both red and dark currant, anise, lavender, tea and wisps of hoisin. There is superb punch and detail to the even more mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that possess a gorgeously refined mouth feel while delivering impressive power on the focused and magnificently persistent finish where the only flaw is a background hint of warmth. This is beautifully well-constituted because despite the excellent concentration this remains light on its feet and it should age effortlessly for decades to come if you have the patience.
Rich, brooding black cherry nose, dense but not surly. Very rich and concentrated with a juicy succulence and immense weight of fruit. Powerful, with 13.8% alcohol, but the balance is excellent. Very long, and of exceptional quality.Drinking Window 2019 - 2035. (SB)
Bright medium ruby. More exotic and exuberant on the nose than the Brûlées, with scents of black raspberry and sexy sweet oak dominating in the early going. Sweeter and plusher on the palate; more pliant and showy today. At once penetrating and powerful, with bitter cherry, dark chocolate and sweet oak flavors carrying through a very strong, long finish, where surprising acidity accentuates the wine's structure. This is ultimately harder to taste today than the Brûlées but both of these wines offer near-grand cru quality. (ST)
