Blind Tasting in Vosne-Romanée - March 1994

MONGEARD MUGNERET

92 Grands Echezeaux

91 Grands Echezeaux

90 Grands Echezeaux * soyeuse, veloute, parfait

90 Richebourg** – a very dark beast indeed.

One of my favourite producers. These wines are majestic, powerful, stunningly well-made and full of personality and charm and depth of character. Seductive and sensual. Perfect expression of this terroir.

 

DOMAINE FRANCOIS GERBET

92 Premier Cru Les Petits Monts*

91 Premier Cru Les Petits Monts

92 Aux Réas villages

92 Echezeaux – perfection ***

Encore, rien à dire. Ces vins sont plus « vifs » et ludiques… moins « sérieux » mais aussi puissant.

 

ROBERT ARNOUX

92 Premier Cru Les Chaumes

91 Premier Cru Les Chaumes – preferred to 91, good oak, mature fruit and a good acid and tannin balance.

91 Les Hautes Maizières villages - ok

92 Echezeaux *** superbe

 

JACQUES et PATRICE CACHEUX

92 Vosne Romanee villages – good for a villages

91 Vosne Romanee

92 Premier Cru Les Suchots* - fleuri, féminin, gras et solide

92 Premier Cru La Croix Rameau - ok

92 Echezeaux*** - fumé, sensuel, mystérieux, séduisant.

 

FRANCOIS CONFURON

91 Premier Cru Les Chaumes – caramel and candied apples. Piquant …

 

RION

92 Premiers Cru Les Chaumes

91 Premiers Cru Les Chaumes

90 Premiers Cru Les Chaumes

89 Premiers Cru Les Chaumes

93 Premiers Cru Les Chaumes

A really interesting evolution, These are direct, straight-forward wines. Well-made but a bit boring – they do not move me as the others have done.

 

 

MUGNERET-GIBOURG

 

92 Echezeaux** enormous potential

85 Echezeaux **** parfaitement évolué.

 

DOMAINE FOREY

92 Vosne Romanée villages – métallique, médiocre

92 Premier Cru Les Gaudichots

92 Echezeaux** - very powerful, but also very aggressive

91 Vosne Romanée villages – un goût de technique, plastique

 

GERARD MUGNERET

83 Premier Cru Les Suchots

85 Premier Cru Les Suchots

92 Premier Cru Les Suchots

Very well-made with stunning potential. Gorgeous fresh acidity and strong extracts. The 83 is still going strong.
