‘The 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru felt very reduced on the nose when I tasted a barrel sample in London, although it seemed to open with vigorous aeration, offering blackberry and cranberry scents mixed with brown spices and cedar. The palate is much more indicative of the wine, armed with lovely, pliant tannins, ample tart red cherry fruit and veins of blue fruit toward the silky finish. It just needs a couple of years in bottle. Drink 2022-2038.’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100

‘The 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru has turned out beautifully this year, wafting from the glass with scents of dark berry fruit, orange rind and grilled squab, complemented by a deft overlay of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, textural and expansive, it’s supple and enveloping, its generous core of fruit underpinned by velvety tannins and ripe acids.’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 91-93/100

Producer information In 1880, a 22-year-old Joseph Drouhin settled in Beaune and founded his own wine company. His son Maurice succeeded him and established a domaine for the Drouhin house by buying land in outstanding appellations including the famous Clos des Mouches and Clos de Vougeot. Today, 4th generation Véronique Drouhin continues the family's prestigious Burgundy legacy. With 73 hectares of biodynamically-farmed vines, Joseph Drouhin is one of Burgundy's largest estates. With vineyards in close to 90 different appellations, Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs.
