    This wine is also inky black-colored but its tightly wound blackberry, cassis, and mint scents are quite different from the Clos Vougeot's. Super-ripe cherries, black raspberries, and cassis are drenched in copious quantities of fat and round tannins in this blockbuster's flavor profile. This is an expansive, thickly-textured, full-bodied, highly-extracted, and awesomely powerful wine that impresses by its size, balance, density of fruit, and sublime length.

  • Anne Gros has been producing exceptional wine in Burgundy for over 20 years. Concerned about practicing a viticulture that is more respectful of man, vine and terroir, Anne Gros has taken a keen interest in biodynamic and organic viticulture. The domaine is known for its fully-developed Pinot Noir vines, which the estate carefully nurtures, even disrupting the soil around the roots with compost. The estate's one-week harvests involve hand-selecting clusters in the early weeks of October.

    Vinification is traditional and they use cement tanks for the reds and stainless steel tanks for the whites. The temperatures are controlled and adapted to the sanitary state of the raw material and the type of vintage. Fermentation lasts 12 to 15 days. At the domaine, barrel aging takes place over approximately 16 months using a large percent of new oak: 80% for the grand crus, 50% for the village wines and 30% for the regional wines. Thanks to this alchemy, the expression of each different terroir is preserved and shown in each wine, to their advantage.
