One of the most dramatic cuvées in the cellar is the 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Reignots, a wine that soars from the glass with a kaleidoscopic bouquet of cassis, raspberries and licorice mingled with notes of blood orange, peonies, exotic spices and smoked meats. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and complete, with powdery tannins, excellent concentration and lively acids, concluding with a nicely defined finish. This is a bold, powerful Reignots, but like the Petit Monts, it's also very nicely balanced.
