Crunchy and fresh, with a little more stuffing than the Hautes Côtes, the expression will come, it was still reserved when we tasted in October 2022. Drinking range: 2024 - 2028 L&S (Oct 2022)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles of wine (or 9 litre equivalent) or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified (4.5 litres) to get the discounted 'case price' for each bottle.

This is also very aromatically pretty with its similar aromas of the essence of red cherry that is laced with spice and crushed fennel hints. There is slightly better volume and punch to the still lighter weight flavors that conclude in a refreshing if lightly rustic finale that is slightly firmer Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 86-88 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2023)

The 2021 Bourgogne Rouge has a fine bright nose with Morello cherry and strawberry, quite citric with time. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, cohesive, but it just needs more grip and substance on the finish. Drinking range: 2023 - 2026 Rating: 85-87 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Jan 2023)

Old vines in the plain. A light purple colour with pleasing fresh fruit on the nose. Additional density on the palate, fills the mouth attractively, just a little lighter at the finish than the warmer years. Balanced and attractive. Drinking range: 2024 - 2026 Rating: **** 87-88 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy  (Nov 2022)

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.
