Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Rouges du Dessous
Domaine Alain Burguet
Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru
In addition to the wines produced from their own vineyards, Jean-Luc & Eric have long-term contracts to purchase grapes from neighbors with exceptional vineyard sites. Eric describes this Vosne 1er cru as "massive and with beautiful balance, with racy and intense tannins." It's certainly a serious, multi-layered wine that delivers any time.
