Peter Maude Fine Wines

2021, Domaine de la Vougeraie, PINOT NOIR, 'Terres de Famille'


The 2021 includes some declassified vineyards such as Vosne-Romanée Champs Perdrix. Bottled in July. Quite a dense purple colour, rather reductive. Blackcurrant notes. The wine behind has considerable potential. *** 86 Jasper Morris MW (Tasted: October 2022).

This is now 100% from the Hautes Côtes de Nuits and young vines everywhere in the Côte, and by exception in 2021, those of Vosne "Champ Perdrix, Beaune "Clos du Roi" and all of the Volnay vines. This was bottled in July 2022 and there is still a trace of post-bottling reduction so be sure to give it some air if you're going to open a bottle upon release. More interesting are the nicely voluminous flavors that possess good richness as well as a seductive texture on the solidly complex and persistent finale. This clearly benefits from the presence of declassified juice and is worth checking out. Outstanding Top Value. 87 Allen Meadows, Burghound.
