James Suckling

Very finely groomed dark cherries and blackberries, as well as earthy and savory complexity. Nicely carved tannins that hold fresh. Vino biologico.

Vinous

The 2013 Veneroso is one of the most compelling wines I have tasted from Tenuta di Ghizzano. Powerful yet weightless, the 2013 presents a beguiling interplay between the aromatic lift of Sangiovese and the darker flavors the Cabernet Sauvignon adds. Sweet tobacco, licorice, dried herbs, tobacco and menthol wrap around the striking, delineated finish. The 2013 is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Sangiovese is so expressive here, I can only wonder what it might be like on its own.

Blueberry and raspberry aromas follow through to a medium body, lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs a year to soften. Better in 2020.

Wine & Spirits

Flavors of black plum surround this wine’s red cherry core, hinting at the influence of 30 percent cabernet sauvignon in this predominantly sangiovese blend. The wine rested in tonneaux for 16 months, picking up notes of vanilla and spice that swirl through the juicy fruit flavors. It gains volume with time in the glass as its raspy tannins begin to soften. Decant it for veal Bolognese.

Wine Advocate

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Village exhibits notes of sweet raspberry fruit, spices and smoky oak, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate with a juicy core of fruit, chewy tannins and appreciable amplitude and power. This hails from an old-vine parcel that Bouchard has purchased for many years and which contains an appreciable percentage of Pinot Gris—not uncommon in Vosne-Romanée.

Wine Spectator

A lean, tightly wound style, with cherry, rose, spice and stone flavors stretches taut against the firm tannins and acidity. Shows fine elegance and length.

The nose has attractive rose and spicy red-cherry aromas, leading to a smoothly succulent palate that carries plenty of fruit flesh and depth. Great wine for early drinking.

Wine Spectator

Supple yet steely, with multilayered pear, lemon verbena and kiwi flavors that draw in fresh ginger accents toward a long, vibrant finish. Drink now through 2025.
