Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru En Orveaux 2013 750ml
Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Jancis Robinson 16
Richly, fruitily aromatic. Lots of oak sweetness on the palate but better balanced and the structure more filled out than in the Savigny Les Narbantons. Still rather drying on the finish, for the moment at least.
Character of the wine
The wonderful exposure enjoyed by the Vosne Romanée premier cru "En Orveaux" vineyards endows these wines with a deep ruby colour and aromas of red fruits, blackcurrants and raspberries. Their robust and richly perfumed bouquet imbues them with a character at once silky and rustic. Their freshness and mellowness, combined with a certain sensuous vinosity renders them a worthy rival to other Vosne Romanée premier crus. This is a supremely well-balanced wine.
