Joseph Drouhin Vosne-Romanée 2016
This is sleek, laced with cherry, strawberry, floral and spice flavors. There's terrific intensity, balance and energy through the long finish. This should develop well. Best from 2022 through 2036. 200 cases imported.
The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Village is a real success, wafting from the glass with scents of briary berry fruit, smoked meats, dried flowers and Indian spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and vibrant, with a firm core of fruit, powdery tannins and a sapid finish. This is a touch more supple and giving than the Gevrey village, but the two are on a very similar qualitative level.
