30/04-2011 - Vosne Romanee

Jens Lindsby

White

    2001 J.M. Boillot Corton-Charlemagne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Aromas of honey and some tropical fruits. Creamy, fat and oily, but also a strong mineral component with fine acidity.
(93 pts.)

Flight 1: Lamarche, Grande Rue and Suchots

    2003 Domaine Francois Lamarche Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru
Nice nose with strawberry and oak. Very seductive, a pleaser and easy to appreciate and understand. Wonderfull light berries and nice power and lenght. One of the tasters didn't like it that much, thought there was to much new world influence, which problably is because of the vintage. But a joy it was (93 pts.)

    1999 Domaine Francois Lamarche La Grande Rue - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, La Grande Rue Grand Cru
Almost black cherries and gunpowder on the nose. Powerfull and young, but at the same time harmonious, precise and balanced. Could use a little additional time in the cellar, but for me this was a very special and unique wine (94 pts.)

Flight 2: Meo

    2005 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brulees - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru
Tons of fruit in this one and so primary. Full-bodied and powerfull, but after some time the palate was wonderfull elegant and balanced. Still too young with a completely unevolved nose. But great potential (95 pts.)

    2004 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Cros Parantoux - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru
Wonderfull dense deep nose with gunpowder and red fruit. The impression of this wine was changing many times among the tasters, which maybe reflect how complex it was. Seems to have a very strong almost masculine side, but also at the same time sweet with strawberry and cherry. Also marked by oak and well integrated tannins. To me this was the evenings most interesting wine. Almost ridiculous to make wine here, the price is ridiculous, but pure magic !!
(97 pts.)

Flight 3: Richebourg and Leroy

    2002 Domaine Anne Gros Richebourg - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Richebourg Grand Cru
Complex deep nose with cherry and brown sugar, has an almost dusty aspect and the oak is evident. The palate is still primary but with wonderfull elegance and finesse. Aristocratic and very long. Great (96 pts.)

    2001 Domaine Jean Grivot Richebourg - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Richebourg Grand Cru
Aromas of black fruit, strawberry and bitter chocolate. Fine elegant and long with plenty of ripe fruit but also a bitter component. This might be underrated, but it just didn't stand the test against Anne Gros and Leroy in this flight.
(93 pts.)

    1996 Domaine Leroy Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru
Sweet, dense with brown sugar, asphalt and an almost burnt nuance. Powerfull, still young and the oak is evident. A very complex wine with plenty of fruit, especially cherries. Explosive on the long finish. 94+ (94 pts.)

Flight 4: Romanee St. Vivant

    2005 Lucien Le Moine Romanée St. Vivant - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru
Wonderfull deep dark nose with black fruits and mint. Your darkest burgundy, has a certain class but to my palate too dominated by oak. Ending in a moderate finish with substantial bitterness and dryness. I have had 3 of Moines 2005 Grand Crus and this is not a style of Burgundy that I am fond of, but perhaps others are better able to appreciate this style.
(93 pts.)

    2005 Jean-Jacques Confuron Romanée St. Vivant - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru
Deep, dense with cherry and moccha, a multilayered nose. Vibrant, juicy almost like silk with masses of light berries. Concentrated and powerfull but at the same time light on it's feet. Everything so elegant with so much finesse. Young but in a class by itself (98 pts.)

Flight 5: La Tache and La Romanee

    2004 Bouchard Père et Fils La Romanée - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, La Romanée Grand Cru
:-( (FLAWED)

    2000 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, La Tâche Grand Cru
Intense aromas of the most concentrated strawberries and cherries. Also vanilla, caramel and the oak is evident. Tons of very sweet ripe fruit. Large bodied and dense. A very intense wine with a long finish. A pleasure to drink and clearly a special Burgundy (95 pts.)

Dessert

    1997 Château Suduiraut - France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes
Nice nose with honey, apricots and also more tropical nuances.Thick and creamy with nice boytrotis. Moderate intensity and lenght. (92 pts.)

It was a great tasting with so many faboulous and unique wines. I would love to do a tasting like this again and it is easy to understand why Vosne-Romanee is considered to be one of the worlds greatest wines. Offcourse it was a disappoinment that Romanee was flawed and Moine didn't live up to it's high rating, but that didn't surprise me. The 2005's were on the young side and Meo Brulees was very primary. The rest of the wines were fine to try now, although many of them offcourse will improve for many years.
