Vosne-Romanée "Les Brûlées" 2009, Bruno Clavelier
This 2009 Vosne is produced from a vineyard with oolite and comblanchien limestone which has turned into a sand. Bruno Clavelier told us that the vineyard drains quickly and heats up quickly hence the vineyard which I liberally translate as "the roasters" (doesn't sound so good in English does it?). Cassis, strawberry, a little closed still on the nose. Great concentration, a big structure, potent, viscous, strong fin de bouche. Good indeed. Impressive contrast with the Vosne-Romanée "La Combe Brûlée" 2009.
