Vosne Romanee Tasting (Golden Gate Yacht Club, San Francisco): Pale ruby with slight bricking appropriate for its age; nose is intensely aromatic with floral, red fruit, stems, spice, quite elegant on the nose; palate is light bodied, light tannins but definitely has structure, youthful red fruit, slight asian spice, some cola, excellent fresh acidity throughout, persistent flavors through the finish; medium+ length finish. This is an excellent red burgundy, consistent with Vosne Romanee (aromatic, elegant, some spice), and enjoyable now but also still quite primary with likely decades ahead of it. Drink the next bottle in 5+ years. 91+ Few hours of air: This is a wine with tremendous balance and a great blend of fruit and aromatic spice, fruits have become a bit darker; palate has fleshed out and has superb acidity. Overall, this wine is young. Needs a decade or so. 91-93++
Dark red in color, nose of slight meatiness, flower petals and cherries. Medium palate but a bit straight forward and simple, fragrant but overall showing a bit more age than it actually is, but the nose is great.

(Nicolas Potel Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts) Medium cherry color with clear meniscus; nice tart strawberry, sous bois, roses nose; tart red fruit, rosehips palate with good acidity; medium finish
(Potel Nicolas Vosne-Romanée Les Malconsorts) Understated, edgy, coffee-tinged fruit on the nose - the nose never really expands in our time together. Roll this concentrated wine around in your mouth and you get sweet, dense fruit and many dimensions of flavour. The wine still seems to be opening out as you move from the mid-palate into the finish - a peacock’s tail.
