The 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Petits-Monts has a very precise, mineral-rich bouquet with hints of violet infusing the dark berry fruit – Margaux meets Vosne maybe? The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins and its conspicuous new oak will need more time to be fully absorbed. It gradually builds in the mouth toward a velvety, bulbous finish that deserves more tension, just to add some bite. ||“Noellat” might be a name synonymous with Vosne-Romanee for decades. However 22-year-old Maxime Cheurlin, Georges Noellat’s nephew, is a name to look for in the future. He grew up in Champagne rather than the Cote d’Or since his parents run a successful champagne house, but it seems that Maxime heard the calling and seems intent on reinstalling the family name in Burgundy. With some enviable parcels of vine scattered around the locale, Maxime works out of the family’s small cellars just behind his parents’ house whose conservatory offers a fantastic panorama across their holding of Les Chaumees. Stylistically, these wines reminded me of Sylvain Cathiard. Yes, there is a modern sheen lent by the new oak, although it only seemed to be slightly excessive with respect to the Echezeaux. Maxime seems to be a driven young vigneron whose tenets have been instilled from an early age, but wow – what potential! eRobertParker.com.December, 2013
