2008 Tremblay Cécile, Morey St.DenisMar. 2011
’Only’ forty percent whole clusters. The nose starts dark but quickly opens up higher tones too. Lovely soft texture, this wine rolls over your tongue like it was made to measure – fab!
2007 Tremblay Cécile, Vosne-Romanée Vieilles VignesApr. 2009
50-60 year-old vignes which kept 80% of their stems during fermentation. – only 14 days in bottle. High-toned with red-fruit dominated aromas. Lots of concentration and that rare element of ‘gras’. Plenty of structure and long finishing. Complex and far from the fruit-driven ‘mold’ of most here.
2007 Tremblay Cécile, Echézeaux Du-DessusApr. 2009
100% of the stems retained during the fermentation, it’s been assembled for 1 month, but is still not in bottle. Beautiful fruit on the nose, which is wide but also shows depth and focus – hauntingly good as a beacon of pure red emerges. Width and grainy tannin on the palate that clings to the mouth – but in doing so it adheres flavour so that the finish is even longer. Stands out both for its individuality and complexity – excellent.
