The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Aux Brûlées 1er Cru has a very precise, focused bouquet of black cherries, crushed stone, hints of pressed iris and Provençal herbs. This seems to unfurl as I swirl it in the glass. The medium-bodied palate is quite fleshy and rounded in the mouth, offering very supple tannin and plenty of brambly red fruit. The mineralité is only apparent toward the final quarter. Not the most persistent of Grivot’s crus, but very seductive.
