This is the eighth vintage that Thibaut Marion has owned Vosne-Romanée vines – a rare and precious addition to his cellar. Having experimented with adding a proportion of whole bunches (for vintages 2013-17) Thibaut has concluded that, for this vineyard, 100% de-stemming gives more freshness, flesh and volume to the wine, so this was the policy followed for the 2020. A quarter of the barrels for ageing have been new. Colour is ruby-purple of medium depth, with red fruits dominating the aromas. Palate has rich body, intense, fresh fruitiness, gentle tannins and luscious, superb length (for drinking 2023-2030+).
