2017 Emmanuel Rouget Vosne-Romanee
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Rouget opted to mature the 2017 Vosne-Romanée Village in a mere 30% new oak this year, hoping to preserve the purity of the vintage's fruit, and the result is a beautifully balanced wine that bursts from the glass with aromas of smoky raspberries, sweet spices and candied peel. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and expressive with melting tannins and a gourmand but succulent core of fruit, concluding with a beautifully delineated finish. Barrel Sample: 89-91"
Burghound - "A classic Vosne nose offers up a lovely array of spice elements on the overtly floral nose of mostly red and dark pinot fruit where a hint of sandalwood lurks in the background. The sleek and more refined if not quite as concentrated flavors culminate in a delicious, dusty and balanced finale. This needs to add depth in order to achieve the upper end of my projected range but the underlying material is present for that to occur. Barrel Sample: 89-91"
