Sweet rose petals, red berries and mint lift out of the glass in the 2011 Vosne-Romanée. An attractive, mid-weight wine, the 2011 has shut down quite a bit in bottle, so I would give it a few years to come around. Floral and savory notes reappear on the finish. (AG)
The 2011 Vosne-Romanee Village has an entrancing, earthy bouquet that is layered over with raspberry leaf and bergamot scents, hints of cold tea emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy, leafy black fruit. This is a slightly austere, maybe curmudgeonly Vosne-Romanee at the moment and it dips just before the finish line, but there is a pleasant saline aftertaste. (NM)
Here the expressive nose is a bit more elegant with essence of plum and violet aromas that are trimmed in notes of anise, menthol and sandalwood. There is a silky texture to the utterly delicious and seductively proportioned medium-bodied flavors that are not especially concentrated but they are harmonious, beautifully complex and impeccably well-balanced. *Outstanding*
I have a lot of the domaine’s Vosne-Romanée villages bottling in my own personal cellar, as I find this to be the finest AC bottling in the commune. The 2011 is another stellar success, offering up a lovely and quite complex nose of black cherries, plums, a beautifully refined base of soil, just a touch of vanillin oak and a pungent topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure and elegant on the attack, with fine mid-palate intensity, suave tannins and fine focus and grip on the very long, young and potentially elegant finish. This will be a lovely wine and make a very strong argument why it makes sense to cellar top village wines!
