ABOUT THIS WINE
The Jewel of the Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée is home to the finest and most expensive Pinot Noirs in the world. From the Aux-Communes climat, opposite to the great Grand Crus, this Vosne-Romanée exhibits all of the characteristics wines from this commune are heralded for. An intense and complex wine with a fragrant elegance, this can be enjoyed now or laid down to gain further complexity over the next 15 to 20 years.
Vosne-Romanée Decelle & Fils will lend itself well to pairings of strengths, ready-made cheeses, game or red meat. This will gain in complexity with 15 to 20 years of ageing.
Domaine Decelle-Villa was started in 2008 when two distinguished winemakers from other regions of France decided to pool their talents and produce high quality Burgundy wines. Olivier Decelle is the vigneron behind Mas Amiel in Roussillon, and he also revived Château Jean Faure in Saint-Émilion. Pierre-Jean Villa was part of a boutique Rhône negociant, and he is also a Rhone Valley vigneron. Now they have purchased and restored an historic 19th century cellar in Nuits-Saint-Georges along with about 20 acres of vineyards in various Burgundy locations. They also source grapes from Gevrey-Chambertin to Chassagne-Montrachet for their Domaine Decelle-Villa venture. The domaine makes more than a dozen wines, from a Grand Cru and Premiers Crus to village and regional appellations.
