Tasted from bottle, Méo's 2017 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées lives up to its fine performance from barrel last year, bursting with expressive aromas of sweet red berries and plums that mingle with nuances of orange rind, exotic spices, raw cocoa and rose hip. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and velvety, with a deep core, powdery tannins and lively animating acidity, concluding with a long and perfumed finish.
