The Vosne Romanee Les Petits Monts 2011 from Sirugue is showing very well.

The Vosne-Romanee Petits Monts from Regis Forey is a real beauty and perhaps my favorite wine in the 2010 lineup. The bouquet is slightly closed but still very expressive with red berry fruits, good minerality spiced with violets with hints of peony rose.

The Vosne Les Petit Monts is always a very charming wine – and the 2011 is no exception. In the bouquet loads of refined jelly fruit aromas and notes of pommegranate, allspice and peony rose. On the palate lovely lush fruit balanced by a refined minarality and a quite fresh acidity. Very elegant, with a lot of finesse.
The 2010 Les Petit Monts is a very fine effort from Liger-Belair. Very fine minarality, elegant, with a lot of finesse. Lovely wine.
