2016 Robert Sirugue Vosne Romanee Vieilles Vignes


From two contiguous lieu dit villages parcels (les Murailles du Clos, les Violettes) along the southern wall of the Clos de Vougeot, this one has been a pet favorite of mine since I started working with the Sirugues four years ago. It has a Vosne Romanée/Echezeaux meets Clos de Vougeot character, with deeper implosive material/minerality/structure (à la Clos de Vougeot) along with the explosive spiciness and blue fruited charm of Vosne/Echezeaux. This year’s is once again tremendous, only my allocation is down, big time….apparently, the Sirugues realized how under priced this little gem is, with the price rising 34% ex-cellars!!! Ouch!…”A bit more closed/reticent aromatically, with a different savory undertone than the regular villages. Then a pure, bright, powerfully implosive mineral beam does the impossible implosive/explosive flavor dance of gorgeously pure dark red fruits and spice. This is simply delicious, complex, and complete…”. Another little * awarded here. Get what you can, allocation tweezers likely needed….this wine had the steepest price increase, 34%! OUCH.
