Description

“I’m a partisan of the Vosne Romanee (acreage) of Flagey-Echezeaux,” says Laurent – with a chuckle – by way of explaining the principle sources for his 2008 Vosne-Romanee Vieilles Vignes, “even though they aren’t in Flagey and neither are they in Vosne!” The reference is to the strip of Murailles du Clos, les Violettes, and les Quartiers de Nuits than runs alongside Clos Vougeot from the route nationale up to appellation Echezeaux (Les Treux), and then to the group of sites collectively known as “les Rouges,” due west, and high up at the edge of the Combe d’Orveaux. A bit of Beaux Monts also went into the 15 barrels that constitute this particular cuvee. 

A decidedly confectionary overlay of vanilla, caramel, and marzipan both on the nose and palate, as is so often the case in Laurent wines of this vintage, manages to integrate itself surprisingly well with fresh dark berry fruit. Polished in texture, this adds depth of meat stock, forest floor, peat, and briny notes that really activate the salivary glands, and all of these features come together for a long, enticing, and fascinating finish.
