2007 Gerbet Marie–Andrée et Chantal, Vosne-Romanée Aux RéasApr. 2009
There’s more depth of fruit on the nose after the ‘basic’ Vosne. Again the fruit profile is sweet, though this label wears a little more tannin and excitement in the mid-palate. Similar length of finish, but here the flavour shows a little more barrel today. Very good.
2007 Gros A-F, Vosne-Romanée Aux RéasApr. 2009
Dark oak notes and a little black olive greet your nose. Not as friendly fruit as many and a little more structured. Decent length though.
2006 Gros A-F, Vosne-Romanée Aux RéasApr. 2009
The nose is more red fruit ‘driven’ than the 07, though black fruit is still in the mix. A little more fat, but more oak flavour too. Good width and a nice, mouth-watering finish.
1997 Gros A-F, Vosne-Romanée Aux RéasAug. 2007
Understated nose that slowly becomes redder and quite excellent. The palate is furry, slightly prickly and comparitively disappointing.
