Vinous - 93-95
The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Aux Brûlées 1er Cru contains 60% whole cluster. It has a crisp, focused bouquet of vivacious raspberry, morello cherry, crushed chalk and light marine aromas, very ethereal in style compared to the same wine a decade ago. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip and flavors blackberry mixed with raspberry, dovetailing into a very tertiary, peppery finish defined (at the moment) by the whole-bunch contribution. This is one that I would cellar for a decade to witness in full flight.
