It is often said that there are no common wines in the village of Vosne-Romanée. After all, this is a commune renowned for Burgundy that encapsulates the loftiest expectations for exotic perfumes and svelte, beguiling textures. This Village lieu-dit begins on the plateau next to the Premier Cru Clos des Réas, constituting 9.78 hectares as it meanders down toward a river and the border of Nuits-St-Georges. The wines are as exotically scented as hoped for, with whiffs of violet, lacquer and five-spice. A burl of tannins mark the finish, leaving little doubt about origins.
Renowned for producing some of the finest and most expensive wines in the world, it is one of the jewels in the Côte de Nuits’ crown and boasts the biggest concentration of top vineyards in the entire Côte d’Or with some of the world’s finest producers - not only with talent, but pioneers of innovation.
The wines are intense and powerful with finesse and elegance. Although Vosne-Romanée’s Grand Cru wines of La Tache, La Romanée and Richebourg are a wine aficionado’s household names (and dreams), the commune’s Premier Cru wines are magnificent and with a well deserved reputation.
