Really firing right now after one day of air. Explosion of Forrest, berries, and leather on the nose. Palate is big but tons of tart cherries and blackberries, more fresh herbs and eucalyptus. Long finish with crushed berries and tannin. — 17 days ago
Sous bois and forrest floor on the nose gives way to a nicely balanced and integrated Cabernet. Tannic structure was still present but did not distract from our enjoyment of this wine. — 2 months ago
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! — 2 months ago
