Rouget’s 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaumonts offers a somewhat sweet-tart or confectionary-fresh alternation already adumbrated in this vintage’s Nuits-St.-Georges. Marzipan and framboise liqueur seem to be mingled with tart red currant, rhubarb, and pungent citrus oils. A hint of superficial resin and vanilla from new wood admittedly fits the confectionary side of this wine. At the same time, crushed stone, iodine, and brown spices add considerable complexity to a seamlessly-, silken-textured if as yet otherwise slightly bifurcated impression, and there is impressive sheer length in this Pinot likely to be worth following for a decade or longer.
