Joseph Drouhin Vosne-Romanée les Petits Monts 2011
"The 2011 Petits Monts is a beautiful wine that will develop into a gorgeous middleweight of great flavor intensity and transparency in the fullness of time. The very suave bouquet offers up scents of black cherries, dark berries, woodsmoke, dark soil tones, Vosne spice, a touch of duck and a stylish base of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, pure and classy, with a fine core of black fruit, superb soil inflection, suave tannins and a very long, soil-driven and classy finish. Just lovely juice...93" JG 01/13 "Good bright medium red-ruby. Cassis, blackberry, licorice, minerals, fresh herbs and bitter chocolate on the nose, lifted by a floral topnote. At once dense and juicy, with lovely inner-mouth tension and energy to its intense dark fruit flavors. Savory, penetrating wine with a firm tannic backbone and resounding finishing fruit....90-92" IWC 02/13

External Reviews for Joseph Drouhin Vosne-Romanée les 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!
