Tasted at the Comte Liger-Belair vertical at the Château de Vosne. The 2007 Vosne-Romanée Clos du Château has a light, slightly nondescript nose at first, developing light strawberry and ferrous notes with time but never really getting out of second gear. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin on the entry and in fact, the palate is superior to the aromatics with a pleasant roundness and poise on the finish. It finishes much better than it starts, basically! Tasted June 2015.
