Scores and tasting notes


The 2014 Vosne-Romanée Clos du Château, which is 100% destemmed, has more red fruit than the 2014 Colombières -- raspberry coulis, pressed flowers, quite nuanced with nicely integrated new oak. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, edgy and fresh with good tension interwoven from start to finish, and a tang of spice on the aftertaste.

Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate, 30 December 2015


The 2014 Vosne-Romanée Clos du Château has a delightful red cherry and crushed strawberry nose with plenty of joie de vivre. The palate is well balanced with crisp tannin, a little hardness on the entry but that will ebb away with time. Fine structure on the finish with dried orange peel, enjoy this over the next 6-8 years. Just a delightful village cru from start to finish. Tasted November 2016.
