2005 Perdrix, Vosne-RomanéeJul. 2008
Deep colour. Initially diffuse aromatics that hint at a spicy depth, they tighten over about 1 hour to offer-up clean black fruit and some minerality. Mouth filling, concentrated, then bursts across the mid-palate with typical Vosne flavours if far from subtle, but to good effect. The tannins are quite well mannered and the finish lingers with an element of oak flavour – but it’s the only woody note. Fresh and tasty, and without overt oak character, but more obviously in need of cellar time than many.
1997 Perdrix, Nuits St.Georges Les PerdrixNov. 2003
Medium-plus colour. High toned nose of blueberry fruit over oak. Lots of oak on the palate, almost good fruit and relatively soft tannin. The acidity is good, and the wine comes across as quite young – but the oak on the palate doesn’t make it a charmer.
