This is large in scale for Petits Monts, more powerful than usual -- complete with tongue-staining extract -- but with the refined, fine-grained tannin characteristic of the cru. The seasoning segues from obvious oakspice to a more exotic and enticing crusty graham cracker mix of sweet and spicy.

(Potel Nicolas Vosne-Romanée Les Petits Monts) A dark and interesting nose of spice-edged damson and a suggestion of toffee. A subtle and elegant wine, with real depth and quite some complexity. Slightly grainy tannin is a fleeting impression before the acidity whisks you into the long finish.
