2005 remmoissenet vosne-romanée

Continuing the Remmoissenet theme – only an 05 Gevrey still waits in the cellar for the corkscrew:
2005 Remoissenet, Vosne-Romanée try to find this wine...
From bought grapes. Deeper in colour than yesterday’s Beaune. The nose starts a little diffuse and coarse – seems affected by CO2 – 10 minutes brings cohesion, deep spicy fruit and a trace of smoky coffee – actually it keeps getting better and better. Very nice. The palate starts very grainy – dissolved gas for sure. With 30 minutes of air you get much friendlier texture, slightly forward acidity but an impressive width as the flavour flows into a good finish. Versus the Beaune you miss a little tension and gras – this is also more expensive; a) your paying more for the name and b) it’s more expensive than the same bottling from e.g. Bouchard Père. It’s good and I enjoyed it, but it doesn’t show the same level of value.
Rebuy – Maybe

    My Remoissenet experiences in the 90s with reds from the Wine Society were usually disappointing and TWS eventually gave up on them. But your post reminded me of a bottle of Remoissenet Richebourg 1985 which a friendly assistant had slipped in to a mixed case years ago and I drank it last night with huge satisfaction. Very pale in colour, not much on the nose,( a bit of spice, perhaps) but sweet, mouth filling and powerful with great silkiness of texture, it had all the elements in harmony. So thank you for serendipitously reminding me of that bottle.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
