Vosne-Romanee Tasting:
A. 1995 Dom. d’Arlot V-R 1er Les Suchots (1/1)
Smokey, some hot alcohol, bright rasp, gets more and more pretty as it fleshes out, gains in weight and intensity with time, lots of smokey roses

B. 1996 Dom. Leroy V-R 1er Les Beaux Monts (6/6)
Darker and brooding, incredibly rich rasp/pepperoni, getting more ashy, leaner in mouth and thinner mouthfeel than expected, high acid but just ashy all the way through

C. 1997 Dom. Drouhin V-R 1er Les Petits Monts (4/4)
Higher toned, more leafy, orange pekoe tea, incredibly gobby fruit, spicy but showing a bit of alcohol

D. 1993 Dom. Rion V-R AOC (3/3)
Rasp tea, gaining in smokey pekoe/gunpowder tea, rich almost jammy, but elements of band-aid, tomato, a bit like a chat de pape?

E. 2002 Hudelot-Noellat V-R 1er Les Malconsorts (5/5)
More earthy and leafy, then coffee notes here, thinner than expected by nose, a pretty dramatic water-line, a more watery

F. 2002 Hudelot-Noellat V-R 1er Les Malconsorts (2/2)
Tannic yet brighter than others, pretty, really floral, esp roses and hibiscus, then coffee as an undertone
