The expressive nose exhibits plenty of floral character along with spicy red currant and plum scents. There is good freshness and a lovely sense of vitality to the rich and notably ripe medium-bodied flavors that retain good precision on the lingering finish. This should drink well in its youth if desired.
Mid brownish ruby. Rich and spicy – quite rich and sweet. Hedonistic rather than the racy side of Vosne. Grainy finish. Fun and pleasurable rather than for purists.
The 2012 Vosne-Romanee Village includes vines from several plots around the village, including younger planted vines in Clos de Vougeot. It will be the final vintage that includes vines in “Les Communes” that will be en fermage from 2013 and my sample included the 30% new oak that will be in the final blend. Lucid ruby in color, it offers a very pure bouquet with dark berry fruit, hints of bergamot and forest floor, gentle at first but gaining in intensity in the glass. The palate is smooth on the entry with dark, deeper fruit than many of the other Vosne villages, adorned with good weight and a fleshy, pastille-like finish. Fine. (NM)
Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of raspberry, smoke and truffley underbrush. Supple, sweet and on the soft side, but with a slight herbal edge to its diffuse red fruit and truffle flavors. (ST)
