    From Veronique Drouhin-Boss's personal acreage (and slightly differently labeled than the other Drouhin wines to reflect this), the 2006 Vosne-Romanee Les Petits Monts surprises with its tanninity and faintly vegetal notes, perhaps legacies of the high percentage of stems that were included in the fermentation, although this did not have a similar effect on other occasions in this collection. The enhancement of diverse oriental spices and floral perfume are no doubt a more positive byproduct of vendange entier. Tart fruit skin and fresh ginger; chalk and salt, convey an exuberantly bright and invigorating length that reveals the sheer sap and cut underlying this unevolved cru bottling. But will this wine of formidable density and energy and clean meatiness manage to deal more harmoniously with its tannin (or would it have been less noticeable on another occasion)? I'd want to revisit this before hazarding any prognosis as to long-term evolution.

    Medium red. Aromas of raspberry, minerals, earth and mint, with pungent floral lift. Juicy, spicy and tight, showing modest flesh and a strong impression of minerally acidity. Perfumed and fine but firmly tannic and in need of patience.
