2019 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées, Domaine Michel Gros

This premier cru neighbours Richebourg, and has a lot of limestone on the soil. This gives the wine great definition and drive on the palate. It has fairly broad shoulders for a Vosne, but with the body amply filled out with spiced fruit and smooth tannins, everything is in great balance.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Aux Brûlées 1er Cru was showing a little reduction on the nose, although underneath you can find plenty of blackberry and blueberry fruit. The palate is balanced with firm tannins, showing just a little bit of alcohol on the finish, though there is a pleasant spicy aftertaste. It needs to pull up its socks to compete with its peers, though.

Domaine Michel Gros

Best known for his monopole Clos des Réas, a vineyard that produces a wine of supreme elegance, this remarkable plot has been in the family since 1860. Michel Gros has been at the head of the family domaine that now bears his name since 1975. A rather more recent addition was his tiny parcel of Grand Cru Clos de Vougeot, bought by Michel’s father for his son’s twelfth birthday, although he’s adamant he would have preferred a bike!
