A really serious Bourgogne Rouge! Could easily be a lesser producers village.

Most wines in this category try to be something they are not. This wine hits nails a lovely Pinot approach! Most consumers purchase this level of wine and drink it in the near term and I would recommend that with this effort. The elegance, charm, and fragile balance will reward your immediate gratification needs. Not a lot of muscle here, but little should be expected and I think less is more for this effort. I think the lovely wine represents the very charming and adorable owner (trying not to let her cuteness impact my judgement) and their spectacular vineyards that dot around the great Grand Crus of Vosne Romanee and hug Romanee Conti... This is a bottle to pick up if you can find it and enjoy it tonight. I will give it a high mark that should be taking immediate consumption in mind. 91 points - a great Bourgogne.

Light color,
Prototypical nose of the Vosne Romanee. Dark cherry, currants, a bit of mushroom and wet earth.
Light on the palate with fruit dominating and with acidity to carry it. Light on tannins.
Still young, but shows what could be.

In pursuit of the perfect Bourgogne. Great earthy nose with leather, oak, tobacco and thick cherry jam. Very Vosne-like, and that is probably its weakness. A bit too stylistic, too limited, but still makes for a very decent regional bottle.
