Finally it's the end of the week and we have a fantastic offer on Dominique Laurent to close the week! "...I continue to find his best bottles to be among the sexiest wines produced in Burgundy..." - Stephen Tanzer's comment on Dominique Laurent Dominique Laurent focus on buying old vines across many appellations in Bourgogne. Most of the wines are in negotiant arm that he works with the grower very closely which makes him busy throughout the year. Dominique Laurent believes that Vieilles Vignes (old vines) gives the complexity and texture to the wines that his style in winemaking is also distinct, he applies more oak than usual winemakers in Burgundy which allows his wine to be the powerful, richly flavoured and complex. Among the line-up from Dominique Laurent from vintage 2015, there is one particular wine that stood out in front of critics. 2015 is widely known to be a successful vintage and Dominique Laurent’s Vosne Romanee Les Beaux Monts ranked the best among all other domaines that Stephen Tanzer has tasted. Tasted two times in 2017 and 2018 with very consistent notes, he noted that the Beaux Monts 2015 is “awfully hedonistic and easy to taste for a youthfully” and “an outstanding premier cru”.
2015 Dominique Laurent Vosne Romanee Les Beaux Monts 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes HK$750 per bottle, Best Price in the World Market Average Price – HK$913 per bottle# 94 pts Stephen Tanzer, tasted in Jan 2018 Bright red-ruby. Compellingly ripe, perfumed nose combines black raspberry, crushed rock, spices and flowers. Plush, sweet and deep; wonderfully creamy but with electric crushed-stone energy and salinity to its very primary fresh cherry and raspberry fruit flavors. In its sheer sappiness and floral lift, this wine transcends its vintage. Really stains the palate and stimulates the taste buds on the superb building finish. An outstanding premier cru. 93-95 pts Stephen Tanzer, tasted in Jan 2017 Bright ruby-red. Vibrant scents of crushed tart cherry, raspberry, flowers and spices. Wonderfully fine-grained and seamless in spite of its crushed-rock pungency, this beauty offers an uncommon balance of thickness and energy. Awfully hedonistic and easy to taste for a youthfully tight wine with outstanding inner-mouth floral lift. The substantial tannins arrive late, allowing the wine's almost medicinal berry and red licorice flavor to expand and build on the aftertaste. Subject to final confirmation. Available in 4-6 weeks. Delivery is free of charge for orders above HK$3,000 (or accumulated order amount at time of delivery); otherwise a HK$80 fee per delivery applies. #Refers to http://www.wine-searcher.com
