Dugat-Py, Vosne Romanee Vieilles Vignes 2002

The Vosne-Romanee 2002 V.V. is really starting to show. It’s made from the two Flagey lieux-dits, Les Quartier de Nuits and Les Violettes. The bouquet is showing sweet red fruit with notes of raspberries, sous-bois, asian spices – hints of violets, orange peel. On the palate still quite some grip from the tannins, but also a good concentration of maturing red fruit. The fruit is dense and well structured with a both silky and tannic touch. It’s focused, quite refined and very powerful for this level. Need 5 years more to unfold the palate. A very good effort – would however have prefered a little less Dugat-Py and more Vosne-Romanee.
