Tasting Notes

Our Notes: "This dense and charming wine was an absolute delight with a grilled steak last week. It's supple, with pronounced black and some red fruit notes. The wine is structured in the mid-palate, with a terrifically long finish and that hallmark sappiness of Vosne Romanée from a great vintage. It's easy to see why Vosne is regarded as the home of some of the top wines in all of Burgundy, and a joy to drink at an affordable price. Decant this and enjoy it now, or put it in your cellar - either way, you will be happy you did." (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer, 06/10) Burghound writes: Vincent told me that he "used up to 60% of the stems in his wine from the Côte de Nuits and up to 30% in those from the Côte de Beaune. 2005 is an aristocratic vintage that isn't at all fruity or forward and thus I did long but soft vinifications with no punch downs, only pump overs. And I'm also doing a long élevage as well with less new wood too, which is to say between 30 and 40%. For me 2005 is a great vintage, even better than 1999 and I believe the wines, both red and white, will age extremely well. This is a fine set of wines, indeed when taken as a group the best that I have ever seen from him. (Burghound, 04/07)
