2001 Duband David Vosne-Romanée

Medium, medium-plus cherry-red colour. The nose is deep and reflects some oak toast and dark fruit. The palate is very smooth, also dark fruit and barrel influences – licorice and black olive – but what’s that on the finish – taint? – confirmed. 10 minutes in the glass and the nose is overwhelmed with TCA – shame. The wine certainly had potential.

Pale-medium yellow in colour. The nose betrays some oak on opening, but 10 minutes later this is well to the background, then shows a nice blend of high tones, a little white blossom and a sweet but subtle pear note. Well balanced with good acidity and a very round and smooth personality. Medium finish with just a little burst of high-toned fruit. Lean, smooth and understated but very well made. This would make an excellent house wine. In the context of ‘Burgundy’ this is fine value, in the context of a faintly oak-based Chablis (which it resembles) then it is ‘only’ very good value – that’s a compliment by the way…

Medium, medium-pale ruby red. The nose starts with plenty of red berries and a slightly graphite background, holds nicely for an hour or so then slowly closes leaving only a sweet red core. Light bodied with nicely detailed red berry fruit, redcurrant, and lovely balancing acidity. There’s real style here, but you have to be prepared for a wine that’s less dense than most other bourgognes.
