Anne Gros Description

Anne Gros, the daughter of Francois Gros, took over her family’s winery at the end of the nineteen eighties. The Gros family dates back as a winemaking family within the Cote de Nuits, more specifically Vosne-Romanee since the early eighteen hundreds. Anne Gros has quickly become one of the most sought-after wineries within Burgundy, developing as a bit of a cult winery in praise of her expertise as a winemaker. Her vineyard sites are found scattered in the beautiful limestone driven soils of the Cote de Nuits, the largest within Vosne-Romanee, following Flagey-Echezeaux, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, and Concoeur. The wine still is terroir driven with 80% new oak in the Grand Cru wines, providing structure alongside the natural finesse of her Red Burgundies.

Decanter: 96 Points

As always, this is a knock-out. Produced from the 80-year-old vines in the Grand Maupertuis section of the clos, this is perennially at the top of my list in the Clos de Vougeot. Aged in one-third new casks using barrels from Damy, François Frères and Ermitage-Berthomieu, the result is balanced and elegant, with a well-integrated smoky, spicy character, and impressive of purity of fruit that lasts through the lingering finish. Drinking Window: 2025 - 2050.

Vinous: 92-94 Points

The 2020 Clos de Vougeot le Grand Maupertui Grand Cru has an intense, quite penetrating bouquet with copious black cherry and cassis scents interwoven with rose petal and violet aromas. The palate is quite dense and multi-layered with dark berry fruit laced with white pepper and bay leaf that builds towards quite a backward finish that will requite 8-10 years to reach its drinking window. A lot of wine in this Clos Vougeot.
