Vosne-Romanée 2007, Gros Frère et Soeur
Tasted at the domaine in a remarkable subterranean cellar room with a grand piano and night-club style lighting. The wine itself had an equally garish feel. Cherry and plum aromas seemed somehow muddled rather than well-defined. Very soft raspberry fruit on the palate with a linear impact and high acidity. This 2007 Vosne seems to lack breadth. Its a taut wine strangely lacking in tannin but aged in 100% new oak barrels. The tasting party were not thrilled by this Vosne misfit.
