My first experience with this producer's wine.

The nose and finish are long and quite nice. Elegant, even. That is undeniable.

But. The palate was primarily notable for its overbearing acid, which threw the thing out of balance for me. Really quite surprisingly so given the vintage, which if anything tended to skew to the other direction.

Also, unless these vines are secretly from some 1er, this is overpriced for what is literally a negociant village wine.

I'm glad to have had the experience, but will not be returning to this producer.

A well-made Vega RE. It's delicious and most ppl WOTN. Superb bouquet with grand structure and fine acidity. We were all spoiled by aged Vega. Decant or give it at least 6-12 hours bottle breath.

    I just have a few bottles of Vega RE -- all are 750ml. From my collection, there are three types of label, one clearly mentions the yr of release and vintages blended, one has a lot number at the bottom left corner which showed the release yr (lot 07/97 means released in 1997) and the final one has just a lot number without a release vintage.

Open from a magnum and consumed in six hours. Sweet cherry-driven bouquet initially but keep evolve into a more balanced nose. Simple but a little bit sappy and coarse palate. Good structure for a beanue village. So so QPR.
