The 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru La Croix Rameau comes from a tiny 0.21-hectare parcel of vines tucked into a plot between Romanee-Saint Vivant and the outbuildings of the village (there are just three exploitants.) It has a rounded, pastille-like purity on the nose: strawberry and just a hint of mulberry at the moment, developing nicely in the glass though. The palate is harmonious on the entry with light tannins, clean fresh and quite linear red cherry and raspberry fruit that segues into an edgy, citric finish that is very appealing. This is a lovely, unpretentious premier cru.
Minerally and earthy flavours combine with dark berry fruit. This is a serious Vosne with savoury herb notes that come through in the finish. The texture is firm and fairly long. This wine needs time, at least 4+ years, to come around. Tasted in: Burgundy. by jeannie cho lee in 2013
