Vosne-Romanée is a small commune in the Côte de Nuits district of Burgundy, known mainly for its red wine from the Pinot Noir grape. Originally called just Vosne, the village took the suffix Romanée in 1866 in honor of its most prized vineyard, La Romanée. The classic Vosne-Romanée wine is considered by many to be the perfect balance of weight, structure, elegance and longevity. Located on the top of the hill, overlooking the Richebourgs, the estate owned by Philippe Cheron, cultivates 71 ares in a particular climate. The land is very diverse, with an average age of over 50 years and a density of 12,000 plants per hectare. The very calcareous soil and the marked slope require permanent grassing. Average yield between 40 and 45 hl per hectare. The style of the estate aims to favor the expression of fruity tones and varietal aromas. The lengthening of the barrel period allows for optimal extraction of color and the development of soft and silky tannins. The refinement of the refinement strengthens the roundness of the wine and brings a subtle toasted wood note. Thanks to the slope of the calcareous soil and the optimal ripening conditions, Les Barreaux presents the clean style of Vosne, marked by minerality. This classy wine is at the same time complex, concentrated and endowed with a fascinating persistence.
