  • Woody

 

The 2012 vintage in Burgundy revealed very concentrated and refined wines. Michel Joannet has once again made a very great red wine from Burgundy with this 1st Cru from the prestigious Vosne-Romanée appellation in Burgundy Côte de Nuits.

Dress with purple highlights, soft and concentrated wine, sustained and elegant aromas that will marry the red fruits (cherry, strawberry) but also the liquorice, with hints of undergrowth that should assert itself over time. Beautiful roundness and persistence in the mouth.

A remarkable 1st Cru that will still benefit from aging, but which already has all the attractions of the great wines of the Côte de Nuits.

Service temperature: 14 to 16 degrees

Wine Characteristics

Shades of red vary from pure ruby to black tulip and are often quite intense.
At other times the wine is a fiery red darkening to garnet with a touch of crimson. Ripe fruit over spices is frequently the main ingredient of the bouquet, modified by the presence of strawberry, raspberry, bilberry, or blackcurrant. These refined and well-blended aromas evolve with age into cherries-in-brandy, preserved fruits, leather and fur, and gamey/woodland scents. On the palate the wine is velvety and distinguished - the Pinot Noir at the top of its form. The wine may seem a little austere in its youth; it needs time in the bottle to develop structure and fleshy texture. Often full-bodied and voluptuous, this wine is the equivalent of a Rubens nude.
 

Wine Steward’s Tip

The powerfully tannic but nevertheless perfectly smooth build of this spicy, opulent, and meaty wine inclines it towards strongly-flavoured meats with a markedly fibrous consistency which the wine can tame and envelop. Goodquality poultry, lamb (patiently oven-roasted), and roast feathered game are easy first choices. But a thick cut of lean, firm-textured beef will match the wine’s fullness, while spicy couscous with poultry will be equally delighted with such a wine for company. A less obvious pairing - foie gras poêlé – also has its advocates amongst serious foodies. This wine has a sufficient force of personality to accompany intensely-flavoured cheeses such as Époisses,
Langres, Saint-Florentin, or Aisy cendré, as well as Cîteaux.
Serving temperature: 14 to 16°C.
 

Situation

“Bourgogne has produced nothing better than this little corner where all her charms come together”. So wrote Gaston Roupnel Burgundian author, celebrated historian of the French countryside. This “central pearl in Bourgogne’s necklace” harbours fabled Grands Crus: ROMANÉE-CONTI, ROMANÉE SAINTVIVANT, LA ROMANÉE, LA TÂCHE, LA GRANDE RUE, RICHEBOURG, and, in the neighbouring commune of FLAGEY-ÉCHEZEAUX, ÉCHEZEAUX and
GRANDS ÉCHEZEAUX. Close to this paradise, the appellation Village VOSNEROMANÉE and its Premiers Crus express the Pinot Noir grape at its heavenly best.
 

Terroirs


The plots growing the communal appellation lie either at the top of the slope or at its foot on either side of the Grand Cru Climats and in some cases reaching the same altitude. The soils are limestone mixed with clayey marls. Depth of soil varies from some tens of centimetres to 1 metre deep. The exposure is easterly.
