HAUTES CÔTES DE NUITS
2019 Blanc Cuvée Marine Domaine Anne Gros
|Village||Hautes Côtes de Nuits|
Delicious bright fruit, concentrated for this cuvée, crisp with excellent acidity, very charming. Drinking range: 2021 - 2024 L&S (Oct 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A pungent nose of sulfur, wood and reduction completely dominates the fruit today. Otherwise the succulent, round and plump easy-going flavors exude a refreshing salinity on the balanced finale. This isn’t especially energetic, but it is attractive in its fashion. Drinking range: 2022 - Rating: 86-88 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2021)

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.
