Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .24 ha parcel of 20+ year old vines planted in a mix of rock and sand**
Mild reduction shaves the top notes from the otherwise spicy dark berry fruit and sandalwood-scented nose. The mouth feel of the overtly stony middle weight flavors is notably finer though they don't possess the same size, weight and power, all wrapped in a strikingly well-delineated and intensely saline-suffused finish that delivers sneaky good length. This is a first-rate example of Reignots.

Score: 91/94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (65), January 2017

The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Reignots has a gorgeous bouquet with mineral-rich red cherry, kirsch and strawberry fruit, quite open and expressive yet still beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, sorbet-fresh with hints of orange rind permeating the vibrant, fresh, tensile, almost tart red fruit, with a crisp and vivacious, animated finish. This barrel sample had so much energy that I almost asked Sebastien Cathiard for a leash. Electric!
