    Heady and opulent, this red offers concentrated black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors with hints of chocolate and spice. The oak is well-integrated, as are the refined tannins. It combines a lush texture with class and length. 15 cases imported.

    An extremely ripe, almost port-like nose without the alcohol explodes from the glass to reveal spicy, dense, powerful and completely classy black fruit flavors that just ooze extract as the finish is thick, concentrated and opulent. This is deep and wonderfully complex and while this too is very firmly structured, the tannins are finer than those of the Clos de Vougeot. To be sure, this is particular in style as it's anything but classic yet it's quite promising all the same.

  • The Gros family has interwoven itself so well into the Vosne-Romanee commune that it is a project in itself just to keep track of the various branches. However, this particular branch is run by Bernard Gros and his wines, in comparison to the other Gros domains, have a youthful exuberance and slightly greater flavor and texture profile. They have a grip and depth that appeal to those who prefer a bit of "tangible" substance to their Burgundy.

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
