Tasting Notes

A markedly more restrained nose reluctantly offers up its notably spicy aromas of dark cherry, sandalwood and plenty of floral influences. Once again, the texture of the medium-bodied flavors is super-sleek with a taut muscularity that carries over to the mineral-driven, chiseled and compact finale. I very much like the balance though the firm tannic spine will need 12+ years to resolve. Worth a look. Note: from a 1.16 ha parcel of 60+ year old vines; there are two sections, one upper and one lower and this cuvée now uses only the upper portion; 70% whole clusters Drink: 2031+

The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Aux Brûlées 1er Cru was due to be racked a month after my visit, which is why the nose was tighter and more backward than the le Clos d’Eugénie. With aeration, there are fleeting glimpses of blueberry and cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins and fresh black fruit laced with graphite and minerals. A "vertical" Aux Brûlées brimming with tension on a peppery finish that is molded by the 60% whole bunch. Excellent, though it will need time.
