About the wine

Tasting notes

Good medium red with a very sexy nose of black fruits, truffle and vanillin oak. Sweet and silky on the palate, with mellow flavours of dark berries, chocolate, cappuccino and vanilla that drive with an underlying spine of minerality.

Expert review

Extract of plum, stone and a wonderfully broad array of spice elements precedes the rich yet beautifully precise and mineral-inflected flavors that offer magnificent focus and persistence. This is a classic Petits Monts as the mouth feel is restrained, indeed almost linear, and the finish is austere and minimalist. To be sure, this is packed with potential but it's clearly going to require some 12 to 15 years of bottle age before the natural opulence of Vosne is visible. *Outstanding*
