2015 Domaine Georges Noellat Vosne Romanee (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1321381 89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A discreetly spicy and appealingly elegant nose reflects notes of fresh purple fruit, violet and a hint of sandalwood. There is lovely delineation and verve to the lighter weight, delicious and attractively textured flavors that deliver fine depth and length on the dusty and well-balanced finale.  (1/2017)

89-91 points Vinous

 Bright, dark red. Attractive lift to the raspberry and floral aromas; this could hardly be more different from the village Gevrey. At once dense and creamy-sweet, conveying very good energy to the dark berry and floral flavors. Finishes bright and long, with substantial ripe, dusty tannins. Cheurlin produced just 29 hectoliters per hectares here, owing to the estate's high percentage of old vines.(ST)  (1/2017)

John Gilman

 The 2015 Vosne AC from Domaine Georges Noëllat seems quite a bit riper on nose than the Gevrey villages bottling, but this is only thirteen percent alcohol. The complex bouquet is a ripe blend of backed raspberries and cherries, Vosne spice tones, chocolate, gamebird, soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and already quite plush on the attack, with a deep core, suave backend tannins and a long, velvety finish. This is good, but does not quite have the same freshness and precision of the Gevrey “en Champs”. 2016-2035.  (1/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Vosne-Romanée Village, matured in 40% new oak, offers ripe kirsch and redcurrant scents on the nose, hints of honey and marmalade indicative of what was a warm growing season. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin. There is impressive body and weight, although I would be seeking more finesse and delineation towards the finish by the time of bottling. It is a little sinewy at the moment, but it should gain more complexity with bottle age.(NM)  (12/2016)

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
Specific Appellation:

Vosne Romanee

- This is the top of the Côte de Nuits. Home to the famous Grand Crus of Romanée, Romanée-Conti, Romanée St. Vivant, Richebourg, La Tâche, Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux, and La Grand Rue, this village really makes you realize how much extraordinary wine can come from a tiny place. This is the home of quintessential Burgundy-deep, rich, refined and powerful.
