Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) There is much finesse and elegance in this wine, very typical of the Vosne-Romanée appellation. Fullness and charm coexist here, in a wine which is not as awe-inspiring as the superb crus, "les Brûlées” and "Cros Parantoux”, but which is easy to drink and will quickly seduce you. The good vintages age well, but this wine has a distinct advantage in its youth: indeed, its finesse makes it ideal for early tasting. In casks, its development depends on the vintage; but generally speaking, it remains a wine that can be assessed fairly early, and which rapidly gives you an idea of the general character of a year. There's no need to worry about finesse, and in this case, the vinification requires a little more extraction in order to push the wine to its limits. The cap will be broken up more often and the vatting temperatures will be a little higher. The years of the plantings are fairly different: the late 50's for one part and during the 70's for the other. The older part is almost the more productive and gives fairly large cylindrical grapes. The sugar-acid balance is excellent. The younger part gives smaller grapes, sometimes even small grapes, but riper with less structure. At the foot of "la Tâche” and "les Malconsorts”, in a slightly deeper clay soil, we have the good fortune to possess two plots of a total surface area of about 4 acres. With its classic eastward orientation and good supply of water, it is a fairly "solar” vineyard which cannot be considered as a late ripener.
