Domaine Anne Gros is one of those iconic makers that everyone wants in their cellar.
The domaine is tiny with just over 6 hectares of vine in total. This includes 0.60 hectares of Richebourg, 0.93 hectares of Clos Vougeot (well placed in the Grand Maupertui climat) and 0.85 hectares of Echezeaux (in Les Loachausses and Les Champs Traversins).
There is a definite feminine hand at work that many feel allows the true character of Vosne-Romanee to speak.
We are able to offer a few bottles of the Rare and very desirable Grand Crus. The wines are on the way and will be here at the end of next month. Be quick, quantities available really are very small.
Normal Price $950.00
Pre Arrival Price $798.00
Tim Atkin MW: Anne Gros' wines tend towards subtlety and freshness rather than immediate, in-your-face power and exuberance. That's certainly the case here in this nuanced, finely wrought Richebourg from the Les Varouilles lieu dit. It's fresh and feline, with notes of red currant, clove and raspberry, subtle oak and a long, satisfying finish. 96 Points
Clos Vougeot Le Grand Maupertui 2011
Normal Price $399.00
Pre Arrival Price $339.00
Stephen Tanzer: Good bright red with ruby highlights. Pure, perfumed aromas of blueberry, minerals and flowers. Juicy, tight and savory, with an almost minty quality contributing to the impression of lift. But this firmly tannic and very backward wine is tough to taste today. 91-93 Points
Echezeaux Les Loachausses 2011
Normal Price $369.00
Pre Arrival Price $313.50
Tim Atkin MW: At less than 30 years of age, this is still a comparatively young parcel of Echézeaux. It's light and delicate, with fine-grained, lacy tannins and sweet red berry fruit. The wine is pale yet fragrant, with beautiful persistence. 95 Points
