Gerard Mugneret Vosne Romanee Cuvee Precolombiere 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Vosne-Romanée|
This is Pascal's Vosne with the most tension and he says it will be able to age as well as a premier cru. The tension comes from a layer of stones at 1.5 meters of depth but also from the very oldest vines in Colombière, planted in 1929. Due to the deep red clays, there is also plenty of fruit to buffer the tension, "and the tannins are not firm," Pascal says. "They keep the drinker interested and call for another glass."
The 2020 Vosne-Romanée Selection Pre-Colombière has an intense, quite compelling mineral-driven bouquet with shimmering red fruit bursting from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine density, quite a good grip with a lightly spiced, persistent finish. Good substance here.
