My oh my this is a very enticing, almost flirty wine. Delicate and pretty, sweet berry fruit. Nicely measured with a tightish core, but the feel is pretty and elegant. Great high-toned aromatics but that ripe red fruit is constant and so delicious. Sleek and liquid drive of fine silk - no flab but great glide and pleasure. Drinking range: 2022 - 2026 L&S (Nov 2018)

(from the villages portion of the vineyard). Here too the nose is ripe and fresh with an attractive nose of red and dark currant with background hints of spice and violet. The succulent, round and delicious barely middle weight flavors that, somewhat curiously, culminate in a lingering if somewhat rustic finish. Drinking range: 2021 - Rating: 87-89 Allen Meadows, 2019)

Burning bales of straw successfully warded off spring frosts; and the 2017 Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'Orveau that they saved is very pretty, offering up aromas of raspberries, plums, warm spices and rose petals. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, satiny and succulent, with lovely purity of fruit and a bright, mineral finish. Rating: 89-91 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny la Combe d’Orveaux offers fragrant raspberry, wild strawberry and sous-bois aromas, quite reserved in style but gradually opening. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, marine-influenced entry. Quite minerally in style, leading to a transparent, quite tensile finish. Fine. Drinking range: 2020 - 2030 Rating: 88-90 Neal Martin, 2019)

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.
