SKU 33907


Supreme elegance! Beautiful color, with intense and bright relections. The diversity of the aromas is striking: wild cherry, nutmeg, camphor wood, fine leather...Later on, the wine takes on a subtle aroma of truffle, producing the most varied palette. With its perfect balance between tannin and acidity, the wine has a fleshy, sturdy body. Powerful and long aftertaste. A wealth of harmonious sensations characterizes this great Burgundy.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Vosne-Romanée Village has more dark berry fruit on the nose than I was expecting and just needed a little more floral aromas to pin it down as a Vosne-Romanée. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, a mixture of blue and black fruit with just a tang of soy on the aftertaste. Like the Gevrey-Chambertin, this is a very commendable village cru that should drink well for a decade but will drink earlier than others.
