Ruby. As pretty as the raspberries you never forgot because they were so heavenly. Tinged with cinnamon and smoky black tea, suggestions of leather and forest floor becoming more prominent as part of a satisfying, spicy, sweetly-fruited finish. Now.
Fifteen years on.
Well-colored ruby but not all that deep. A touch of sous-bois now. A Vosne of amplitude: toasted spice and raspberry coulis. Plenty of vigor and easy to appreciate, as this Arnoux remains true to the Vosne appellation. Finish these up over the next few years and enjoy the fresh ’99 fruit. Now.
