Pretty simple and straightforward Vosne that opened up over 90 minutes. As it warmed up from cellar temp, it showed a bit more of the cherry flavors that immediately showed on the nose. A bit light but nice value wine.
Rather closed to start, with a slightly mediciinal nose. This needed a good hour to wake up. Then deeper, darker nose. Still fruity - raspberry / cherry. Some oak wafts in. Slightly granular texture. Balance was fine. Not terribly exciting. Overall fine, but seemed a little in between phases - neither fruity nor secondary.
Two bottles tried - this wine really showed what a minefield that red Burgundy can be and ended a recent good run. Horribly out of balance and sharply over acidic and lacked almost any fruit - got worse after about an hour's decant - a very disappointing wine and the lowest score that I have given a wine on CT partly due to the expense involved

(Potel Nicolas Vosne-Romanée) Despite the nose starting a little more diffuse than the Gevrey - faint spice and a trace of coffee - I love it when you sniff a wine and can instantly say ‘Vosne’, and here you can. The palate is at the same time understated, but also quite forward - still well controlled though. Ripe tannins and a tight but lovely length.
