Great deal on a special red Burgundy. Many have called the 2015 vintage, on of the best of the century. The only problem is that 2015 was another in a string of small harvests that have caused the prices of the region's better wines to skyrocket in price. So we were really excited to grab these Vosne-Romanee from respected producer Louis Latour at a great price (great for Grand Vin Burgundy, at least).
Indisputably the jewel of the Côte de Nuits, the Vosne vineyard counts several legendary crus such as Romanée-Conti and Tâche. Stamped with richness, finesse, complexity and harmony, Vosne-Romanée symbolises, above all, elegance. Their dominant mellowness is balanced by discrete tannins and a touch of acidity. This fleshy, highly persistent wine is highly aromatic, with dramatic perfumes of cherry, strawberry and undergrowth. It a dramatic, extroverted wine, exploding from the glass with aromas of incense, nutmeg, violets, dark chocolate and ripe cherries. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, supple and succulent, with fine-grained tannins, crunchy fruit and an ethereal, open-knit profile.
