Vosne or Vaona comes from the Gallic word “wadana” meaning water (to this day a large spring still supplies all the surrounding villages).

Wines from Vosne-Romanée are vermilion, with shades varying from pure ruby to black tulip to dark purple. Ripe fruit against a spicy backdrop makes up the complex and balanced bouquet of strawberry, blueberry, and blackcurrant. On the palate, the fullness of a Vosne-Romanée is expressed through a velvety, distinguished mouthfeel. Balancing richness and tannins, texture, and structure under a generous attack, this is a wine to lay down.

An opulent, fleshy, and spicy wine with marked tannins, Vosne-Romanée goes best with strongly flavored meats with a well-defined texture that it can stand up to and complement. But a spicy chicken couscous or pan-fried foie gras is also good for an unusual match.
