Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From two parcels below the village, Tremblay’s 2005 Vosne Romanee Vieilles Vignes is pungent and alluring in its spicy, musky, truffly, distilled-berry nose. It displays a dense palate amalgam of rich meat stock, saline minerality, and bright, juicy cassis and red raspberry, and finishes bracing and lip smacking in its expression of fresh fruit and minerals. While subtle fungal, forest floor, and carnal elements are omni-present, this represents a fruit-forward and much brighter, luminous personality than one expects from 2005. There is hardly any doubt that more richness and textural refinement will be evidenced once this has rested from bottling, which took place two weeks before I tasted. (The 2004 rendition of this wine, incidentally, represents an excellent introduction to Tremblay’s style and quality – indeed it served as mine.)

"Pure, refined, and elegant" are just a few words that describe Cecile Tremblay’s remarkable wines. Based in Morey-St. Denis, Cecile runs this interesting biodynamic 10 acres domaine in the Côte de Nuits. Beginning with the 2003 vintage she has garnered much acclaim from Burgundy insiders and the wine press alike. She has added several more appellations over the last 5 years. Her approach is organic and biodynamique. Cecile believes in very dense plantings, manual harvesting, some destemming but more and more whole-cluster fermentations, 15 to 18 months of élevage in approximately one-third new oak barrels and bottling without fining or filtering.

Vosne-Romanee Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

This is the village for the most die-hard Burgundy fanatics. Vosne-Romanée has for many hundreds of years been the source of the most sought-after Pinot Noir in Burgundy. The village claims six Grands Crus—and some of the most famous at that—but in other villages where owners manage tiny parcels or a few rows of any one vineyard, monopolies dominate the Grands Crus of Vosne-Romanee.

Of these monopolies, Domaine Romanee-Conti (DRC) reigns supreme, claiming not only more total vineyard area than any other producer, but outright owning the entirety of two of the Grands Crus and a majority of two others. In its full possession are naturally Romanée-Conti, as well as La Tâche. DRC also owns most of Richebourg and Romanée-St-Vivant. The final two, La Grande Rue and La Romanée are completely owned by other other produers: François Lamarche and Comte Liger Belair, respectively.

While one could spend a lifetime on the puzzles of land ownership in Burgundy, the point is that Vosne-Romanee contains the most valuable pieces of vineyard real estate in the world. Pinot Noir from any of its vineyards—especially from within its 27ha of Grand Cru or 58 ha of Premier Cru land—is going to rank among the best.

The most outstanding wines from this village have everything: finesse and elegance coupled with the body and sturdiness for incredibly long aging ability. They are intensely floral and exotically spiced. Beautifully ripe, complex and ephemeral throughout, they are robust, yet fine-grained in texture. These wines will stay gorgeous for the long haul.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
