Tasting Notes

Don't miss! Outstanding
An even more complex if not quite as ripe nose is quite cool and restrained and it requires aggressive swirling to coax the beautifully layered aromas of plum, dark currant, violet and once again a lovely array of spice elements. The powerful, concentrated and palate coating medium-bodied flavors flash plenty of minerality on the hugely long and impeccably well-balanced finish. Despite the evident harmony of expression it is also abundantly clear that this is going to require a long snooze in a cool cellar before it arrives at its peak. Drink: 2031+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (69), January 2018

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Cros Parantoux is blessed with a bewitching and detailed bouquet with subtle floral scents: wilted rose petals littered over redcurrant and cranberry aromas, a hint of clove emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, cohesive with fine-boned and yet somehow understated with a touch of salinity and lapsang souchong on the finish. Maybe at present, a more reserved Cros Parantoux than Emmanuel Rouget’s, yet one can already see its potential. 2021 - 2040
