Zippy acidity, so this is very fresh, and there's concentration too, so it's balanced and long. Drinking range: 2024 - 2030 L&S (Nov 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.

There is a vague suggestion of the exotic present on the mix of apple, pear and a hint of pineapple. There is good volume and richness to the utterly delicious flavors that are supported by bright citrus-tinged acidity on the agreeably dry finale. To enjoy young for its crunchy fruit.

The 2021 Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc Cuvée Marine has a pretty bouquet with apple blossom, touches of white tea and tangerine. The palate is balanced with good concentration on the entry, fine acidity, though it just needs to develop more tension on the finish. Drinking range: 2023 - 2026 Rating: 85-87 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Jan 2023)

Pale in colour with a pure elegant bouquet, refreshing in its mineral style. Fresh lemon notes, not too much flesh, but enough and the finish is quite long for generic level. Drinking range: 2023 - 2025 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.
