Vosne-Romanée Les Champs Perdrix – Vinous – 90 Points
Medium red. Lovely floral lift to the nose. Tangy black and purple berry flavors are complicated by mineral and earth notes. Plumper and riper than the village Morey-Saint-Denis, this wine will be drinkable early. These vines high on the hillside were picked last in 2014, noted winemaker Philippe Brun, adding that it’s necessary to take the risk of waiting for this fruit to ripen fully. Incidentally, this vineyard is barely 200 meters from Romanée-Conti but is normally harvested ten days later, according to Clair.
