Vosne Romanee Aux Reas 2014 AF Gros
The 2014 Vosne Romanée Aux Réas has a crisp red cherry and raspberry-scented bouquet, a touch of vanilla and undergrowth developing just behind and lending complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, the 50% new wood lending structure towards the finish, with touches of coca on the aftertaste. There is good focus here, though it will need 3-5 years in bottle.
Light to mid cherry red. More red-fruited than the Maizières on the nose but still has that spice and darker fruit flavours on the palate. Lively, fresh and already supple. (JH)
