THE MERCHANT'S MARK
97+ / 100
Wow! There is a reason the village of Vosne-Romanee is home to some of the most exclusive Grand Crus in Burgundy (Echezeaux, Richebourg, La Tache, and Romanee Conti, to name a few). Without breaking the bank, you can get a glimpse of greatness in the 2017 Bertrand Machard de Gramont Vosne-Romanee. This blissful Burgundy boasts polished rose petal, ripe cherry, black fruit, baking spice and perfectly balanced acidity. Velvety on the palate, we were captivated by this wine's approachability. Though not a Grand Cru, it has elements of Grand Cru greatness and reveals some of the best attributes of the village with its depth and silky fruit.
