Ratings & Reviews
92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2014 Vintage):
"From a two-acre parcel of vines planted in 1950, this is a finely perfumed, rich wine. It has generous red fruits and an equally opulent ripe character. The tannins are thereâ€”a dry layer that is supporting the spiceâ€”as is a firm solid texture. Drink this wine (which is still developing) from 2019." - Roger Voss (12/31/2016)
88-90 Points - Stephen Tanzer (2014 Vintage):
"(Nicolas Potel vinified this wine with a small percentage of whole clusters to prolong the fermentation): Medium red, a bit less saturated than most of these nÃ©gociant wines. Attractive lift to the aromas of raspberry and rose petal. Fine-grained and light on its feet, showing lovely inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of raspberry, spices, violet and rose petal accented by fresh herbs. Finishes with firm, harmonious tannins and noteworthy verve. Should make an excellent village wine.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage):
"The 2014 Vosne-RomanÃ©e Village has an expressive, slightly earthy bouquet with cranberry and redcurrant aromas developing in the glass. I appreciate the delineation here for a village Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with just a little rusticity on the entry, moderate depth and showing a touch of austerity towards the finish. Hopefully this will flesh out with some bottle age." - Neal Martin (27th Apr 2016)
