2014 Combe d'Orveau Domaine Anne Gros
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Juat as saline as the Bourgognes, this has less obvious fruit and more a sense of rocky mineral. Very pure, a fine mineral juice. The fruit then fills out, and it's a dark fruit flavour - loganberry? - which is lifted by the general briskness. Drinking range: 2018 - 2028 L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Dark and nervy on the nose. Very sweet and fine. Lots of pleasure here – though notably soft tannins. To be drunk early? Very round and a bit soft. Drinking range: 2017 - 2023 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
Here too there is noticeable wood toast on the relatively deeply pitched nose that consists mostly of dark currant aromas that display hints of rose petal and spice. The round, textured, supple and velvety flavors possess ample minerality before terminating in a vibrant finish that tightens up while displaying enough dryness to somewhat impair the overall sense of balance.

The 2014 Chambolle Musigny la Combe d'Orveau is back, back, back after being hailed off last year. It has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry, wet limestone and briary scents, more Morey in style than Chambolle perhaps. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry, quite terse and backward; this is a broody Chambolle with a brisk, very linear finish. It should gain more flesh by the time of bottling, but it might still be convalescing from the trauma of 2013. Drinking range: 2016 - 2023 Rating: 87-89 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Dec 2015)
Ripe raspberry fruit. This is fresh and has verve. Light, fine and tense tannins. It has a dancing energy and a lively long mineral finish. Races onto the finish. Precise…From 2019 Rating: 17.25 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 2015)
Domaine Anne Gros
Anne Gros 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.
