2004 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasApr. 2011
The nose has plenty of oak and dark cherry, a little farmyard too – eventually developing high-toned aromas too – I see no vintage character, but oak can obscure that – all the same nice. Good texture; mouthfilling with plenty of well-mannered tannin. Long and darkly flavoured – a good wine for drinking now.
2007 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasApr. 2009
Deep and less floral than the ‘Vosne’, but again quite an intense nose. In the mouth there’s also intensity of flavour and reasonable tannin behind it. The acidity is just a little bright and there’s plenty of oak on the finish.
2000 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasMar. 2004
Medium cherry red. The oak is showing on the nose, plus high toned redcurrants. Red fruit on the creamy palate. Smooth tannins – a good wine.
1989 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasMar. 2004
Medium-plus ruby. The nose has more obvious coffee and little black fruit. Lower acidity then 1990 – or at least seems less fresh. Good quality, but it was always a tough job to follow the 1991 & 1990.
1999 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasMar. 2004
Medium-plus cherry red. A little spice and a little less oak but still some toast, hard to get at much else. Red fruit with good acidity and smooth tannin – comes across a little firm but also comes across very young.
1988 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasMar. 2004
Medium ruby red. A bready, cherry tart nose. Sweet fruit, resolved tannin and good acidity – adds up to a very nice wine.
1998 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasMar. 2004
Medium cherry red. Similar toast to the 1999 with a little blacker fruit. Lovely fruit with well mannered but grippy tannins – perfect acidity. Very good.
1985 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasMar. 2004
Medium, medium-plus colour. Estery, old-burgundy nose. Nice mature fruit that lingers. Again very nice.
1997 Gros Michel, Vosne-Romanée Clos des RéasMar. 2004
Medium, medium-plus cherry red with a little amber. The oak is barely detectable together with black and red fruit pies. Excellent fruit and depth with good acidity. Starting to drink now.
