Manuel Olivier – Les Damaudes 2016 – Vosne Romanée

The nose is elegant and offers intensity, power as well as a good finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of blackberry, cherry and small notes of wild raspberry associated with fine touches of Cuben pepper/gray pepper, violet as well as fine hints of spices and oak. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers gourmandize, tension, juiciness, a mineral frame as well as a crunchy/acidulous fruit. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cherry, blackberry and small notes of small red berries associated with touches of plum as well as hints of cornflower/lilac, toasted, tonka bean and mild tobacco. Tannins are well-built and very discreetly firm. There is a discreet hint of dry almond on the finish.
