"This is also quite ripe but, not surprisingly, much spicier with floral, plum and black raspberry aromas that precede rich, intense and mocha-suffused middle weight plus flavors that are pure velvet on the seriously long finish. Villages level wines rarely get much better yet this is not even the best example in the range in 2009."
Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Vieilles Vignes is a sweet, sensual wine graced with exquisite depth in its spiced dark red fruit. Mineral notes add to a sense of thrust as the wine works its way through to the intense, textured finish. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029."
