A crowd pleaser from Burgundy: 2006 Domaine Guyon, Vosne Romanée

Domaine Guyon is a small estate with 8 hectares headed by the brothers Jean-Pierre and Michel Guyon since 1991. This wine is made from 50-60 year old vines and it is matured for 10-14 months in oak (30% new).

The 2006 vintage can be described as an average vintage for red burgundy. The wines are quite fruity, fresh and easily approachable. You can drink them at a quite young age.

The nose is very generous and quite dense with lots of raspberries, strawberries, menthol, sweetness and hints of oak.

On the palate we find an abundance of quite sweet red fruit as well as hints of leather and some spices. The acidity is fresh and clean and there are minerals in the background. Unfortunately we find some bitterness in the finish which affects the total impression.

This is a very approachable and surprisingly powerful wine for a Vosne-Romanée. Unfortunately the wine lacks complexity and personality for a top score. Just open and enjoy instead of spending hours analysing.
