Critic Notes

An exuberantly spicy nose of cassis and liqueur of red berry fruit is liberally laced with clove, anise, sandalwood and soy nuances. The robust and tautly muscular flavors exude a fine minerality on the wonderfully intense (again, almost painfully so), delineated and driving finish that goes on and on. While it isn't yet quite as harmonious, 2011 is a vintage where the Brûlées may be just as good as the Cros. Note however that this is very firmly structured and will need plenty of cellar time. Tasted: Jan 14, 2013. Drink: 2026+

Score: 92-95/100Allen Meadows, Burghound

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Aux Brulees 2011 from Jean-Nicolas Meo has a relatively simple bouquet at first, delivering nicely detailed fresh strawberry and red cherry aromas, but it gains complexity in the glass and after 5-10 minutes manifests a satisfying sense of minerality. The palate is medium-bodied with an understated entry, well-judged acidity and generous raspberry and blackcurrant fruit interlaced with tertiary notes. There is a sense of bashfulness on the finish implying that needs bottle age to come out of its shell. There is good potential here, but it needs time. Nov 2014, www.robertparker.com

The six red and one white Grand Cru wines are often transcendental, each single vineyard distinctive (a Batard Montrachet is also ...

A refined, svelte, elegant neighbour to Richebourg
http://vosne-romanee.fr/[/caption] The grand cru vineyards of Vosne-Romanee are arguably the finest vineyards in the world.  Chambertin and Musigny might make a fight of it, though the clump that is La Romanee, Romanee-Conti, La Tache, La Grande Rue, Richebourg and Romanee St Vivant is some very, very serious soil.  Echezeaux and Grands Echezeaux should, strictly, be included here but they ...

Henri Jayer - Burgundy's most collectable wine
Henri Jayer’s career in wine started when he began looking after the Camuzet’s vineyards during the Second World War. He is most famously associated with the production of Vosne Romanee 1er cru “Cros Parentoux”,  a vineyard which, at the time he took over, was largely a neglected vineyard site sitting above the Grand Cru site of Richebourg. With very thin ...
