Description

From prime lieux-dits Aux Barraux and Les Ormes, the 2017 Vosne-Romanée Village bursts with aromas of plums, strawberries and red berry compote, mingled with hints of candied peel and vanillin. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, built around powdery tannins and lively acids. 90 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

David Duband told me that 2017 was a “relatively generous vintage where we enjoyed both good yields and good maturities, which is not always the case as it’s sometimes one or the other but not both. There fruit was also very clean, and all that it was necessary to do was to eliminate berries that weren’t ripe. As is typical for me I used quite a bit of whole clusters in the vinifications, which is to say around 60% for the entry level wines, 75% for the 1ers and about 90% for the grands crus. Regarding the wines, they’re lighter in style but I like the sense of energy, freshness and transparency. They’re not really built for long aging but they may very well surprise people as to how well they can age simply because they’re so well-balanced. Burghound January 2019
