Holy guacamole frecking S**TTY expensive. Sorry to kill your hype, but this is just plain watery juice. All is balanced and in place, oak integrated with fabulous PN typicity together with some minerality. The famous "transparent structure" rulez.

...but it is WATERY!
Wife wouldn't want to drink it even if it was offered for free.

Last night, we had a '03 Numanthia where many things are the same: Long tradition (Numathia's vines are +100 yrs), distinct minerality, hardships in production, verging-on-obsessed passionate owners/winemakers, keen wine making etc. The Numanthia made us almost silent in awe. But where are the results from the endeavors in Vosne? Almost nothing come in to play with this Romanée. It did absolutely nothing for us. Some other tasters sung its praise. We asked them what they meant, they didn't answer...

We returned from this Vosne-Romanée tasting, remaining completely in the dark and not at all understanding this kind of wine making.

This is delicious for sure with quenching acids and the tone of voice is rather small, not unlike Cola Zero.

I also understand why the tasters that praised this wine perhaps didn't elaborate openly. It isn't uncommon for palates that prefer wines that are bolder and more extracted to not prefer the nuances of Burgundy terroir. Couple that with the fact that this bottle was opened at least 10 years before it should even be touched is a sure fire guarantee of a poor experience for any Burgundy novice.
