The 2003 Pinot Noir Reuling Vineyard confirms what I tasted from barrel last year. This is obviously a suitcase clone from a renowned Vosne-Romanee vineyard (we all know which one), and the results are remarkably similar. A floral, black cherry, raspberry, plum, and forest floor-scented bouquet is accompanied by extraordinary, savory, broad, rich notes of blueberries, strawberries, and wild flowers. Rich, broad, and beautifully pure, but neither heavy nor over the top, it is a tour de force in Pinot Noir. It should drink well for a decade.
(from four-year-old vines cropped at one ton an acre; aged in 100% new Francois Freres barrels) Bright, deep red-ruby. Sappy, sexy aromas of black cherry, raspberry, black tea, flowers and mint. Dense and rich but with terrific lift and perfume in the middle palate. From a Vosne-Romanee clone, and it shows it in its wild strawberry and black raspberry flavors. A wonderfully viscous pinot noir that somehow manages to avoid coming off as heavy, despite carrying 16% alcohol. This clone survived the heat of 2003 more successfully than the more recent Dijon clones, Aubert claims. Finishes with oak tannins that turned a bit charry as the wine opened in the glass. My score would have been even higher for a bit less oak.
