Pinot Noir Loves This Terroir
The Vosne-Romanée appellation includes 15 Premier Crus and 8 Grand Crus. For that reason, Pinot noir is the favorite varietal of these terroirs. Thus, It gives wines ranging from a fiery red dress drawing on the dark purple to vermeil. The aroma is ripe red fruits (raspberry, strawberry, blackcurrant, and blueberry) on a background of spices. With a little age, they become more complex, evolving into candied and wild notes or hunting. Pinot noir gives full and velvety wines and well balanced between richness and tannins. These characteristics are, of course, Vosne-Romanée long-aging wines.
