Editorial Reviews for Drouhin Joseph Vosne Romanee Petits Monts
Mean and austere on the nose with some raw oak, mint and light meaty notes. On the palate, this was a touch soft and chewy with some mineral earth notes and herbal nuances. Not much is going on here, though the finish does show some lingering bitter tannins. 85 pts
Shy and a bit spicy on the nose. Slow to emerge smoke, earth and rhubarb notes lend this a less ripe and slight chunky tone. Soft and bright in the mouth, this is rather lacy and pure with red berry fruit. It is a bit on the simple side, but as balanced and fresh as this is, it is attractive. 88 pts
This opens sappy and sweet with oak to the fore and a background of licorice spice. There is a deep, roast meat, veal reduction edge to the fruit and high tones of cola and floral tones. In the mouth this is bright with a bit of an extracted feel. Simple cherry and cranberry fruit is presented in a modernish package of clumsy tannins and elevated alcohol that yields an inelegant whole though the finish does offer a pleasant medicinal note. 86pts
Sweet and sappy on the nose with very spicy fruit. Still a bit rigid in the mouth with good acids and just a touch of tannin sticking out. Still youthful but not particularly exciting. 87pts
Nice bottle sweetness and limestone minerality here with a gamy, smoky edge to the fading fruit. Very friendly in the mouth with nice freshness and fine balance. Gently sweet and still surprisingly vibrant. A pleasant surprise 88pts
Four and a half glasses
Tastes of honey, butter, very sweet on the pallet. Delicious wine!
09 CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET CLOS DU CHATEAU, 1ER CRU Chateau de la Maltroye , White Wine, 750ml Always a winner, this shows a purity and vibrance unusual for the vintage. A mingling of peaches and fresh citrus, laced with white flowers and flowing minerality. Stylishly serious - and most seriously delicious! https://www.burgundywinecompany.com/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=57&zenid=q3r430tvq2fbqtknceetrrpnn3
SG$50 in Singapore. One of the biggest rip off I ever had.
Two and a half glasses
Rich bubblegum fruit, sweet cinnamon and plum. Some nice cherry cola fruit on the palate but overall seemed lacking in acid balance and a bit flabby.
External Reviews for Drouhin Joseph Vosne Romanee Petits Monts
Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone own and manage this small family estate in the Piedmont. Having already discovered their extremely good, value-priced Barolo, we had to try their Pinot Noir when we heard about it. And we were very impressed. Not just because it is a textbook example of beautifully balanced, cool-climate grown Pinot Noir, but because the price was unheard of for a wine of this quality. Piedmont is a very similar micro-climate to Burgundy and this Pinot shows classic characteristics of black cherry and strawberry fruit with bright acidity, earthy nuances and lively tannins. It's aged six months in oak barrels and shows a marked complexity. This is one you've got to try!
A restrained, indeed almost mute nose reluctantly gives up aromas of acacia, citrus peel, wet stone and white peach. The supple and ultra-refined flavors possess a beguiling purity along with as much mineral character as the Perrières, before culmina... Burghound.

A more elegant though still very clearly reflective of a classic Savigny nose, speaks of plum, dark berry fruit, stone and plenty of the typical Savigny earth. There is excellent detail and plenty of energy to the precise, intense and solidly complex... Burghound. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2010 Bouchard Pere et Fils Savigny les Beaune les Lavieres 750ml
Medium red. Wild, musky aromas of smoke, leather and tobacco, with red fruits in the deep background. Then surprisingly tight and chewy in the mouth, in a distinctly masculine style, with berry and spice flavors currently cut off by substantial dus... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The lovely 2010 Petits Monts from Domaine Georges No
Full red with ruby highlights. Slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry black cherry and mocha. At once fine-grained and penetrating with fruit-driven intensity. A bit simple on the front end then builds impressively toward the back finishing with a note of cherry and an impression of salty extract. Four of these seven barrels were new. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Quite rich - in fact much richer than some Chevaliers. Big and bold and less racy than some. But lots of fun! Dense and deep flavoured. Some hint of smokiness as well as the richness. Very long. Creamy finish. A Chevalier that is trying to be a Montr... Jancis Robinson. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2010 Bouchard Pere et Fils Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru 750ml
