Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 90

Tasted at the Comte Liger-Belair vertical at the Château de Vosne. The 2005 Vosne-Romanée Clos du Château is a vast improvement over the previous two vintages with fresh red cherry, orange rind and rosemary scents that are not intense, but are well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, harmonious in the mouth with degraded, lightly spiced red fruit and a slight grittiness on the finish that is appealing. This is probably at its peak now – the best vintage since the 2000 for sure. Tasted June 2015. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025

JancisRobinson.com – 16.5

Lively with some evolution on the nose. Closing up. Quite a lot of tannin closing in and acidity. Not sure I would immediately guess it was a 2005 if I were served it blind. A little angular. [17/03/2008]

Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020

Vinous – 90

Medium red, a bit pale for 2005. Wild, exotic aromas of plum, smoked meat, truffle and damp earth. Very sexy, broad and classically dry, with lovely depth and richness. Still youthfully restrained, but solid minerality gives this soil-inflected wine a freshness. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and excellent length. [Stephen Tanzer, 03/01/2008]
