This Vosne village lieu-dit is priced at the level of a premier cru since it is next to the Clos des Réas which is a premier cru. I confess that this has been a plank in my cellar for many years as tasting notes for the 1999, 2001, 2004 and 2005 bear witness. Just as one would wish, this pinot is ruby and reflective. Appetizing aromas of mineral, flint, raspberry growing in a rock, floral. There is a hint of myrtille flavour, red berries, blood orange, savoury with a fresh finish. Beautifully evolved. Like other 2001s it has reached full maturity and soon the fruit will dry out. Perfect complement for roast chicken façon Mitch.
