Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Cecile Tremblay, Vosne Romanée, Les Rouges du Dessus, 1er Cru, 2017

Focused and very fine. A slighter, more kinetic style Vosne. Intense with vivid, salt-flecked red berry and redcurrant fruit and a sweet touch of plum. Precise as ever as well as being a little more pliable and tactile than usual, tightening on the racy, crunchy finish. A distinctive and high quality Premier Cru perched high up the slope directly above Echézeaux yielding fresh, high altitude wines with strong mineral character.

ABV:
13%
94/100
Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Rouges du Dessus 1er Cru is showing some oak on the nose, although there is sufficient fruit to support that. This seems to gain purity and delineation in the glass. The well-balanced palate is fleshy, ripe, and quite sweet and tart, with red cherries, blood orange and a citrus element on the silky-smooth finish. This might not be long-term, but it is very well crafted, sensual and alluring. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.

Cecile Tremblay

Cecile Tremblay

Rising star Cécile Tremblay, Henri Jayer’s grand-niece, took the reins of her family domaine in 2003, working a total of three hectares of the family’s six hectares. As with all top growers the attention to detail here is in the vineyards. Cécile tends her vines with the utmost care and respect for terroir and the environment, practicing organic and biodynamic farming. In her own words "the grape bunches are my English roses, the vineyards my garden." To ensure low yields (between 25 and 35 hl/ha depending on the vintage) pruning is short and excess buds are removed. The wines undergo a cold prefermentation maceration and are then fermented either with no, some or all of the stalks depending on the wine and the vintage. There is the minimum of intervention here with ageing taking place in oak barrel (20 to 75 % new wood depending on the wine) for 15 to 18 months. These wines are a beautiful marriage of vivid, individual terroir characteristics and silky sensuality.
