The premier cru vineyards of Beaux Monts are dissected by the parish boundaries of Vosne-Romanée and Vougeot, hence the varying styles produced. Etienne Grivot’s has elegance and breadth. Always well structured this is a very gracious wine destined for long ageing.
Grivot's vosne displays a good deep core of inky fruit, an indicator of the structured wine to come, and the nose exudes purity and elegance with classic notes of dark morello cherry and black plum. The palate is delicious with wonderful sophistication and class displayed by the fruit, while tannins and acidity keeps the finish fresh.
45-year-old vines produce a wine full of richness and spice. A very deeply-coloured vosne, this is wonderfully appealing with its sweet black cherry fruit flavours, delicious purity and long full finish.
Deliciously opulent black cherry aromas with a penetrating note on the palate. Cathiard’s Reignots has a wonderful balance of satisfying fruit and a silky broad texture. A wine of immense class.
A super village wine which approaches the complexity of a premier cru. From its dense purple colour, its soft red cherry fruit aromas to its gorgeous mid-palate intensity and lovely vibrant crisp finish, this is a very fine burgundy.
With Grivot's production down in 2003 by a massive 40% the only complaint over this superb village vosne-romanée is the tiny volume available. A very rich and concentrated style as one would expect from the vintage, this has immense power and will reward some cellarage.
The most glittering jewel in a stunning array of Grands Crus from the talented
Nicolas Potel. This Romanée St-Vivant packs a huge punch - a powerhouse of a
Pinot that is brimming with opulent, ultra-ripe fruit. This has spectacular
length, and breadth - its scents and flavours expand and develop to a wondrous
finish. Yet, despite the muscle and the power, there is a seductive nature to the
wine. The wines of Vosne-Romanée are on sparkling form this year and this is
one of the superstars.
Premier Cru En Orveaux is located on the border with Chambolle-Musigny
above Clos Vougeot and Echézeaux. A cuvée that combines the structure of
Vosne with the finesse of Chambolle, which in many minds is the perfect Côtede-
Nuits style. Profound scents of black fruits with a touch of cocoa. The palate
is laden with sumptuous, luscious fruits. Reveals great complexity and length.
There is a rich, creamy berry fruit compote of some restraint on the nose. Similar characters on the palate but with a mid-palate elegance and lightness of touch.
