Sweet lush and seamless; a silky subtle midweight with lovely clarity of raspberry coffee and floral flavors. Finishes floral and fine with ripe tannins and subtle persistence. Again this is distinctly Vosne-Romanee-like and utterly seductive.

Delicious red with blackberries currants and vanilla character medium to full body and a silky cool fruit finish. Very fine indeed. Rol Valentin is a serious small producer now. Best after 2007. 1165 cases made. (JS)
