    (Bichot Albert Vosne-Romanée) Medium-plus ruby-red. On opening the wine has super red fruit in a Vosne vernacular, then in minutes tightens leaving just a few high tones. Wait about one hour and there is a softening; sweet fruit and a note that hovers between coffee and pipe tobacco. Good texture - fine tannins - real intensity in the mid-palate and excellent balance with the acidity. There is a good finish and a good feeling to match. I've liked this wine for a while and given that it seems to be tightening a little, the last few bottles will have to rest for a few years now. Still very good.

    (Bichot Albert Vosne-Romanée) I've usually shied away from the Bichot wines, not sure why, I've rarely seen them reviewed, maybe it was a hangover of Anthony Hanson's assessment in his book! Certainly the label is nice and attractive but what about the wine? Medium, medium-plus cherry-red. The high-toned nose instantly betrays a little toasty oak but then it's gone leaving predominantly red fruit with a little white pepper. Fresh palate with sufficiently intense red fruit for the appellation and much finer tannins than the Chevigny V-R that follows it. Super acidity and creamy length. Not as robust as the Chevigny and perhaps not quite as concentrated but there's a really lovely mouthfeel here. Obviously quite young but pure and not obviously oaky either. Next time the co-op has a sale I will certainly buy a few more - a success - maybe I should arrange a visit!
