    About

    As well as being the name of the wine, Vosne-Romanée is a commune in the Côte-d'Or in Burgundy. This is a very serious wine area with 15 Premier Crus and 6 Grands Crus. The style of the wines is often described as a combination of elegance and power with the best (and most expensive) Grands Crus seen as the ultimate expression of Pinot noir. Put simply, many consider this to be the finest wine region in the world and the prices, which can be in the tens of thousands, are certainly the highest.

    Jules Regnier was a Dijon-based merchant and a tasting of one of his 1919 Burgundies reported 'Despite a less than perfect wine, this is a stunning experience in a glass'. We have tracked one other tasting score for his vintage Vosne Romanee which was 4.5 out of a possible 5 for the 1969 vintage. As a vintage, 1959 was outstanding for both Burgundy and Bordeaux. With ideal weather conditions from budding to harvesting, crops were good and of a high quality and from a number of recent tasting notes, it is also clear that many wines from this vintage are still drinking well too.

    Our Views

    A top appellation from a great vintage at a VERY low price for this wine. The level isn't great, but then one of the greatest wines we've ever been lucky enough to taste was a similarly aged Burgundy with a worse level than this.
