The 2002 Cros Parantoux from Emmanuel Rouget is quite a step up from his otherwise delicious Echezeaux 2002. The bouquet is crammed with layers of predominantly red fruit – spiced with complex variations of Vosne spices and a quite earthy minerality. On the palate layers of velvet fruit … deep, lush, silky and complex, with a aim to please attitude. Not a wine with a big Grand Cru framework … but the depth and delightful complexity elevate this wine into Grand cru territory … a super sexy 1er.

- Odds and ends around Christmas and New Year I tasted quite a few interesting wines at social gatherings while celebrating Christmas and New Year. Lafon galore .. the good, the ugly Starting out with the whites I tasted three wines from Comte Lafon two 2004s – Les Perrieres and Les Charmes, and one sadly premoxed example of the 2001 Meursault Perrieres. The 2004 Meursault Charmes was ...
- Cros Parantoux – the sweet spot of Richebourg Vosne-Romanee Cros Parantoux is a mythical vineyard … with a reputation created by the legendary Henri Jayer. With a location just above and next to Richebourg this 1er cru is regarded as something very special. But the story of Cros Parantoux doesn’t start with Henri Jayer, the vineyard was known much earlier. So lets take a ...

- Echezeaux – Grand cru standard? Echézeaux is one of the largest grands crus of the whole Côte d’Or. It’s divided into a number of plots or climats the vineyard, located around the smaller Grands-Echézeaux.
