Domaine Jean-Pierre Guyon Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru 'En Orveaux' 2021
Drink 2027 - 2046
10 to 14 months new oak
4.3 on Vivino
In the village of Flagey-Echezeaux, the vineyard « En Orveaux » nestles in the lower part of the Combe d’Orveaux. Within this little valley runs a little stream which during heavy rainfall can swell and inundate the surrounding land. « Orveau » or « Orvau » in Burgundian means flooding.
The eye discovers a flamboyant ruby colour of amazing consistency. The nostrils boil over with pleasure under the aromatics of fresh roses, violets and cherries all supported by sweet spices such as nutmeg, and some resinous notes. As for the wine in the mouth, it is velvety and sensual. There is a saliva inducing thread with silky, fine-grained tannins. A rounded and well drawn out texture completes the magnificent balance of this wine.
Marvellous with a roast, veal, guinea-fowl, fillet of beef or fine cheeses.
Be patient and wait for at least 6 years before trying the wine. Drink it from 15 to 20 years old, or more depending on the vintage.
