Vosne Romanee and Flagey-Echezeaux (Beltramo's, Menlo Park): Deepest color of the tasting. Nose dominated by green herbs. Large scaled and not as imprinted by oak as the '09 Les Chaumes. Round feel, subdued black fruit, acidity noticeably lower than in the Gros Frere Echezeaux, licorice finish. Easy for this level. Good but undistinguished, especially at this price. I did not like the vegetal edge of the 2 Lamarche wines today.
