    (DRC Vosne Romanee Cuvee Duvault-Blochet) The 2002 Vo Ro 1er Cru was seductive and had great spice, but it still felt like premier cru in the end despite that unique and delicious DRC seal of approval.

    (DRC Vosne Romanee Cuvee Duvault Blochet) A magnum of 2002 DRC Vosne Romanee Cuvee Duvault Blochet was sweet and young with a little banana peel appeal. It was easy like Sunday morning.

    (Romanée-Conti Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru) Medium colour. A wide, interesting and smokey nose of quite some complexity, eventually a little bacon-fat comes through too. The palate is nicely delineated if not so concentrated, yet is both elegant and delicate. Actually this is rather beautiful and shows wonderful balance, such that I expect it will be very long lived. Super and with beautiful aromatics too. This was a hard bottle to open - not through guilt, rather the cork - pushing the corkscrew into the top caused the cork to start sinking and wine to squirt as there was no airspace. With incredible care and a twin-pronged 'pull' tool I got the cork out - phew! Comparing to the other wines opened this cork seemed narrower in diameter…

    (Romanée-Conti Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru) A bright, medium cherry-red colour, just a shade lighter than the Echézeaux that stands by it’s side. A quite lovely nose that begins with a suggestion of torrefaction and sweet powdery fruit. Swirling releases a much more prominent and precise red-fruit note. Medium bodied, this wine shows an elegant balance between the fruit and acidity, the tannins showing a grainy edge and just a hint of dryness. There’s a serious aspect to this wine and whilst it’s shallow in the context of the DRC line-up in 2002, it’s certainly not shallow in the context of the appellation indicated on the label. I expect this wine will be a great investment, regardless of how you choose to use that word.

    The 2002 Romanee Contis and a Mt. Sinai Hospital Charity Event, 2/13/2005 90 points

    (Romanee ContiVosne Romanee Premier Cru, .Cuvee Duvault-Blochet.) had a noticeably lighter color than the rest of the wines, but a fresh nose nonetheless with rose, plum, stems and an herbal/dill edge. The fruit seemed plump but dressed elegantly to the point where you can.t see the fat&yet. It got less herbal with air, and more violet came out with a pinch of vanilla and wood. The palate was clean and pure, with long acids yet soft tannins and obviously young with some woodsy flavors wrapped around its tender core of violet fruit flavors. There was a drop of that dill on the palate, with a side of crème fraiche

Rockss and Fruit

  • By Lyle Fass
    2/8/2005, (See more on Rockss and Fruit...)

    (DRC Vosne Romanee 1er Cru "Duvault Blochet") Very vibrant ripe nose with complex spice and bright bing cherries. After some coaxing some menthol, leather and blueberry appeared all set on a background of mineral. The brightness on the nose is reflected on the palate in waves of pure ripe, sweet red fruits. Sexy and silky with great density buffered by great acids. Long on the finish. A great start as this wine has great upside and will develop for a while in the bottle.
