A classic Vosne nose that is at once very spicy and very pinot offers up ripe yet very fresh red and black berry liqueur aromas. There is fine detail and excellent precision to the seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess outstanding depth and seriously good length as well. This may well be the best vintage for this wine ever made, at least since modern day production of it was recommenced in 1999. There is so much sap that it will be approachable young but age well too. (1/2012)
90-93 points Wine Advocate
The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Cuvee Duvault-Blochet is a supple, racy wine. Layers of dark fruit blossom on the palate as this gorgeous, textured wine opens up in the glass. Sweet, silky tannins frame the exquisite finish. The Cuvee Duvault-Blochet is made from a second selection of fruit across all of the Domaine’s vineyards in Vosne. In its finest vintages it is a terrific wine that delivers plenty of the winery’s signature style at a slightly more accessible price. A recent bottle of the 2006 was striking. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. (4/2011)

This red shows high-toned aromas of kirsch, licorice and spice allied with an elegant frame. Forward yet very harmonious, with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. (Web 2012)
91 points Int’l Wine Cellar
High-toned aromas of strawberry, raspberry, orange zest and minerals, with a slightly roasted note emerging with aeration. At once fully ripe and energetic, with terrific mineral and floral cut to the racy red fruit flavors. Finishes strong and long. A very good showing. (a premier cru made from the second passage through old vines in the estate’s crus; previously offered in 1999, 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008) (4/2012)
