    The 2012 Clos de Vougeot “Le Musigni” comes from the titular lieu-dit tucked in the top right hand corner behind the chateau as you observe the clos from the RN75. It is ripe and candied on the nose with hints of licorice and star anise joining the dense black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy dry tannins on the entry. It is difficult trying to peer through the opaqueness of the new oak in order to discern the character of the fruit underneath. This is a standoffish Clos de Vougeot at the moment compared to say, the example from cousin Anne or brother Michel. Cellar this for at least seven or eight years.

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.
