A winsome wine and the group favorite (see villagewinejournal.blogspot). Classically Vosnish with spice, perfume and the WOW factor thrown in. Guessed (wrongly) it was one of the Vosne Grand Crus in the tasting. Lively, fresh and gripping. A great pleasure to drink now but there is serious structure to this wine as well. I'd give this another 5 years to really reach maximum potential.
I think Barry's note is quite a good description of this wine. The only thing I would add is that these dark fruits with great intensity are well balanced with decent acidity and beautiful tannic structure. I think this drinks beautifully now, and it will be interesting to follow its development.
Top Burgundy Tasting at the Sotto Lounge. (Netherlands): Deep nose of black raspberries, black cherries, plums and espresso. On the palate the wine is deep, with dark black fruit, great intensity of flavor and a very long and spicey finish. A brilliant young bottle of Les Beaux Monts.
