2020 Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas, & Arlaud

This is one of the parcels that Cyprien and his team farm organically all year round and harvest themselves, under the négociant label. It is an excellent village lieu-dit that a number of growers choose to bottle separately, sitting at the southern end of the village. It has some firm structure in its savoy, grainy tannins, offering support to the fruit. This should age well.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Vosne-Romanée Village did not quite "take off" on the nose like the Gevrey Village. The palate is better with edgy, slightly angular tannins, crisp acidity and yet I find this too linear on the finish. Maybe this is a little pinched as the mercury had begun falling in the cellar?
