"Aromatically the nose possesses a similar fruit profile but it's notably spicier. There is also a bit more concentration to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a more refined mouthfeel before terminating in a saline and lingering finish. The refinement is mostly due to the dense but fine tannins and this should age well for its level." -Allen Meadows
"Containing 70% whole bunches, the 2017 Vosne-Romanée Village is a blend of Les Communes, Les Saules and Bossières. It has a very floral bouquet, with wilted rose petals infusing the brambly red fruit, and hints of lavender tucked in just beneath. The medium-bodied palate is strict and linear, offering quite firm tannin and perhaps just requiring a little more finesse toward the finish at the moment. This is quite an uncompromising Village Cru, but intellectually it is very satisfying." -Vinous
"Light ruby colour. Here the red fruit is a little richer and sweeter than on the Pinot Fin and the fragrance is wonderfully lifted. It’s pretty but there’s also good depth of fruit and a light sprinkling of spice, as well as the freshness but not the herbal character of stems. Firmer, darker and more compact on the palate than I expected, the tannins like layers of paper, giving a firmness but no friction. Gently savoury and spiced on the long finish. Darker beauty and immense finesse."

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.
While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!
