“La Croix Blanche” should be a premier cru. This shows the silk you expect from the finest Vosnes with an added concentration achieved through Bocquenet's strict selection of only the ripest grapes. This cru shows all the Vosne silk with an added touch of structure and poise that one doesn’t typically see in purple-fruited Vosne—more pepper, more heft, overall a bigger, bolder wine. Raspberry and strawberry aromas are bold, while the mouth is chiseled and pure, with a serious peppery edge. Put a case away and watch it blossom.
