Arnaud Baillot Vosne-Romanée 2019
Arnaud Baillot Vosne-Romanée has a brilliant ruby red colour with bright reflections. Diverse aromas of wild cherry, nutmeg and fine leather roll off the glass in waves. A subtle hint of truffle emerges on the tail-end, like a warm afterthought. Still young and somewhat closed at the moment, it’s already making a crushing impression on us. Soft and super juicy with lots of energy, this will evolve beautifully in the next few years (or months!). The medium-bodied palate conveys a sturdy, fleshy body and perfect balance of elegant tannins and vibrant acidity. Cherry and red fruit flavours dominate with a hint of vanilla, cinnamon, truffle, cedarwood and maybe even a floral lilac memory. A wealth of harmonious sensations that closes in a powerful and long aftertaste.
100% Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from plots in the AOC Vosne-Romanée village appellation. Manual harvesting through parcel-by-parcel ripeness monitoring and with grape sorting. Traditional fermentation for 15 days in stainless steel tank. Pumping over twice a day until the end of fermentation. The wine then ages in Burgundy Oak for 12 months, 25% new oak. No filtering before bottling. Finally, the wine ages in bottle for 10–15 years.
Ageing potential: Cellar until 2028!
