 Tasted by vmad on 7/26/2015 & rated 91 points: Lys og noe mursteinsrød på farge. Vektløs og elegant i munnen. God frukt. God lengde. Tipper den er en god del utviklet nå. Merket ikke noe til 2004s grønne rykte. 460 kr for 6 år siden. (284 views)
 Tasted by ddiamonddc on 7/10/2015 & rated 94 points: Started out on the watery side but gained weight and fruit as it opened up. Little green of the vintage and really pure Vosne pinot fruit. Definitely has a good bit of life left. Wish I had more.... (272 views)
 Tasted by AMM3RD on 4/1/2013: I enjoyed this wine, better than most 2004's I've had. Light/Medium red color, but fuller medium+ bodied wine. Rasperries with nice acidity, super mouthfeel. Drink over the next 3 years...AM

 Tasted by BurgAndy on 11/15/2011: Going through some of the 2004s that I have. Ah, ladybugs. Irony was that I have a few flying around the house for some reason. Very appropriate. Nice red color, soft red fruit and spice on the nose. Tastes of some red fruits, a touch of integrated wood, and some greenness. Good mouthfeel, enjoyable for what it is, tannins are soft without dryness. Ladybugs. (1914 views)
 Tasted by Bernt Olav on 7/14/2010 & rated 93 points: Nydelig følge til kyllingbryst fra Stange. Virker for meg som en moden vin, men har nok noen år til på seg. (2205 views)
 Tasted by Bernt Olav on 5/28/2010 & rated 94 points: En deilig flaske vin som passet utrolig godt til indrefilet av kalv. Massevis av røde bær, krydder og masse mer som jeg ikke får satt ord på. En lett og myk vin med utrolig mye aroma og smak. Har heldigvis to flasker til... (2255 views)
 Tasted by Charlie Carnes on 11/6/2009 & rated 93 points: There is no way to get around the watery greenness of this wine. With that said, the green was not a bell pepper or vegetative, but a very complex and hard to describe greenness, that to me says," sure, the vintage was green, but I was not that affective by it!" The wine was very mature for its age and I would not call it particularly 5 year old Vosne or Suchots, but it was altogether very good. The maturity was shocking, but the wine was sweet, decadent, and mellow, and with a clear red color, and an hour without a cork, the wine became very good. I thoroughly enjoyed it. (1993 views)
 Tasted by Seattle Burgundy Group on 2/21/2008 & rated 95 points: Seattle Burgundy Group Tasting #5 Vosne Romanée (Triage Warehouse): Pale ruby, consistant to rim.

Spicey, stemmy, and full of red fruit, if a little demure on the nose. Raspberries, strawberries, cherries, cardamom, mace, vanilla and baking spice. Moderate oak, a little reduction, and a lot of sappy, earthy, brooding aromas underneath.

On the palate, this was the lightest, most elegant of the 9 wines tasted. But there was pleanty of depth, along with gorgeous raspberry and strawberry fruit. There are lots of sweet and savory spices, a pleasant kiss of oak, a great nervy acidity, and a really long, sweet finish. Is there a lot of earth? I reserve judgement for 10 years. (2157 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 9/23/2006 & rated 90 points: Tart earthy red fruit nose; light bodied, bright strawberry and cream palate with good acidity; medium-plus finish (1180 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates

Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru

Vosne Romanée is one of the smallest wine villages in Burgundy The wines possess diverse characteristics, but they can generally considered to have complexity and longevity beyond nearly all other wines in the world. The village has six grand crus: Romanée-Conti, La Romanée, La Tâche, Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, and La Grande Rue. While there is monopoly control of four of the six grand crus, the village has at least forty growers sharing its vineyards. The top premier cru includes Les Malconsorts, Cros Parantoux, Les Chaumes, and Clos des Réas.
