2013 Domaine Anne Gros
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Tasting superbly at the Lea & Sandeman Summer party. Pretty, floral, blueberry and petals. Ever so slightly chilled the volume and structure here are perfectly countered by the fine lines and a cool edge. Beautifully bright and perfectly measured Red Burgundy - far more sophisticated than the simple Bourgogne moniker might lead you to believe! This is totally charming. Serve at cellar temperature to really enjoy this stylish Pinot Noir expression. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 L&S (Aug 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Dense and a little hidden but with lots of interest and substance. Drinking range: 2016 - 2019 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2015)
(30% new oak). A lightly spiced nose features notes of various red berries and soft earth and humus nuances. There is a bit more volume to the moderately rustic barely middle weight flavors that possess reasonably good depth and length for a wine at this level. This should also drink well young. 2016+ Rating: 85-87 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2015)
The 2013 Bourgogne Rouge has an attractive bouquet, quite floral but it takes around five minutes to really get going. The palate is medium-bodied with taut, slightly chalky tannin and an appealing blackberry and cranberry finish. Sure, it's just a bit ephemeral, but it will give two or three year's easy-drinking pleasure. Drinking range: 2015 - 2027 Rating: 85-87 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Dec 2014)
20 barrels from 3 parcels in Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint-Georges. 20-25 year old vines. They have Glagnipy (on the plain, below the railway.); Les Champs d’Argent and Les Paquiers. Light colour. Slightly darker red fruit; quite sweet and juicy. Light-bodied with a bite at the end. Somewhat more tannin here.Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Nov 2014)
Domaine Anne Gros
Anne Gros joined her father François at the family domaine in Vosne Romanée in 1988, having given up her arts studies in favour of viticulture and oenology at Beaune and Dijon, and has run the domaine alone since 1995. The Domaine now has 6.5 hectares of Pinot and Chardonnay. Anne describes herself as being 'wary of certainties and keen to preserve her freedom'.
In the vineyards Anne practises viticulture influenced by organic and biodynamic principles, and the vineyards are ploughed and fertilised with compost, but although she believes that the long-term health of the vineyards are best preserved by such methods, she likes to maintain the freedom to use conventional treatments when necessary.
In the cellar, the wines are classically made, in cement tanks for the reds, and stainless steel for the whites. They are then are aged in barrel for up to fifteen months, with 80% new wood for the grand crus, 50% for the village wines and 30% for the regional wines. Anne is quietly meticulous and almost obsessive about cleanliness in her cellar, which perhaps is reflected in the delicacy and restrained tension in her wines, which have aromatic clarity, limpid precision, sheer joie de vivre, lively balance and persistence.
