The last bottle of my 2012 Vosne Romanée from Alain Hudelot Noëllat and its a wonderful show that it manage to put up. Like a grand dame in its golden years bit with a hell of a spirit its displaying evolving characters of dried strawberries, rose petals, blood orange and menthol that is backed up by a prominent choir of nutmeg, clove, truffles, wet stones and forrest floor. Fresh palate with very present but smooth tannins, an expansive palate as the encore slowly fades out in a very respectful and balanced finish.
Day 2 tasting and its pumped up, more nuanced, defined and dresses up to its teeth in elegance. The last bottle of six will leave its mark for sure. Divine! — a month ago

Face à face contre la RSV de Hudelot-Noellat. À l’ouverture le nez est plus expressif que la RSV. Dès le service on remarque que la robe est nettement plus foncée. On y dénote la cerise et les fruits noirs. En bouche, une belle présence et une bonne présence. Un vin encore assez musclé.... on n’est pas dans la dentelle. Belle longueur — 3 months ago
2017. From a Hudelot-Noellat Zoom tasting this morning. Light lemon almost green in color. Fairly forward nose of lemon, unripe stone fruit with a slight floral quality. Lush palate, very pleasant wine although a tad simple. Medium+ to long finish. — 4 months ago
