Gerard Mugneret Vosne Romanee Cuvee Precolombiere 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Vosne-Romanée|
The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Selection Pre-Colombiere has a rich, generous bouquet of s kirsch, cassis and pressed violet. There is real depth to these aromatics considering that it is a Village Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, and more marine-influenced than the Vigneau, revealing oyster shells on the finish. Excellent.
The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Cuvée Précolombière is another punning cuvée name from Mugneret, this time in the form of a contraction of the three lieux-dits he assembles in this blend: Pré de la Folie, Commune and Colombière. It's the richest of these three communal Vosne bottlings, bursting with notes of cherries, raspberries, loamy soil, petals and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and elegantly textural, it's lively and gourmand, with refined tannins and a perfumed finish.
