Real race on the nose; recognisably Vosne but at this stage Vosne Lite. Lots of life and quite sinewy. Great freshness and at this stage easy to like even without great depths – yet?
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018

Good medium red. Reticent but lively aromas of black cherry, cassis, licorice and menthol, with some riper notes of mocha and chocolate coming up with air. Juicy but a bit youthfully aggressive; in a rather powerful, chocolatey style for village wine. No shortage of energy here, but this needs time to harmonize in bottle.
