Aromas of raspberries, spices, smoked duck and espresso roast, framed by a deft application of new wood, introduce the Mugnerets' 2018 Vosne-Romanée Village, a medium to full-bodied, lively and nicely concentrated wine with fine tannins, a ripe core of fruit and a nicely defined, energetic finish. Since La Colombière was bottled separately this year, the 2018 represents a blend of lieux-dits Les Chalendins, Le Pré de la Folie, Les Champs Gourdin and Les Croix Blanches.

The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Village comes from three or four parcels within the commune. It has slightly darker fruit compared to the La Colombière, perhaps not quite as pixelated in style. The palate is fleshy and forward with succulent ripe tannins, good density and layer of raspberry, strawberry and spicebox toward the finish. Just a delicious Vosne-Romanée.
