VOSNE-ROMANEE Les Jacquines
The village is located at the heart of the Côte de Nuits, between Vougeot and Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vines grow at an ideal altitude of approximately 250 metres and cover just over 150 ha. "Les Jacquines" is located south of the appellation, Nuits-Saint-Georges side, and this is the name of a land that has certainly belonged to Mr Jacquinot de Richemont, a memeber of Parliament from Dijon who, as far as we know, was a big land owner in the lieux-dits neighbouring "La Tâche".

After a winter that was almost too mild, the vintage was notable for two contrasting periods. Spring was sunny and totally devoid of frost, despite some localized episodes of hail, which had major impact on certain plots on the Côte de Nuits, which were hit in June. Then the summer was dry and hot, blocking the ripening process in places. Picking began early, with exceptionally abundant fruit in tip-top condition, offering the potential for some very fine wines. Ageing potential: from 5 to 10 years.
