Tasting Notes for Vosne Romanee Orveaux - Cathiard, Sylvain, 2005:
From 60-year-old vines high up above Echezeaux, the Cathiard 2005 Vosne-Romanee En Orveaux is the most austere wine on this occasion, with a chalky mineral character and bright but slightly tart red fruit marked by candied and caramelized inflections and a considerable evidence of new wood. Smoked meat character emerges beneath the alternating bright and caramelized black fruits in the finish. Not that this wine is entirely unimpressive Ñ far from it Ñ but could it just be having a bad day, I wonder?
