Vosne Romanée, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2016

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Village comes from three vineyards covering 1.5 hectares and sees one-third new oak. It has a fragrant bouquet with ebullient strawberry and raspberry fruit entwined with cold stone aromas and discrete sous-bois aromas. The palate has a little more substance than its fellow village crus even if it does not quite deliver the same finesse as the Morey-Saint-Denis or the Gevrey-Chambertin. Still, I appreciate the deft spicy note that sustains the finish.

Mid crimson with a purple cast. Scented with red cherry, more open than the Gevrey. Then darker fruited than I expected on the palate. Firm, dry texture of super-fine tannins, more like layers of paper than grainy. Upright and definite and already in harmony even in youth.
