An excellent wine I cannot deny and one of character too – but it’s priced as a premier cru – so I would rebuy only at the ‘correct’ price…
2009 Eugénie, Vosne-Romanée
Classic spice-bread on the nose. Clearly there is quite some extraction here, evidenced by that modern rarity – real tannin! Good underlying acidity and plenty of flavour too. This is a wine of real character; the tannins are forward but without astringency and the fruit flavour is equally boisterous. I like it.
Rebuy – Yes
