    This too is very toasty though the expressive nose of earthy red berry fruit and sauvage scents is much less spicy. The round and surprisingly supple middle weight flavors are supported by slightly riper tannins but even so there is a very mild edge to the slightly austere finish. This is clearly better than the Ech but not at the same level as it usually is.

    Moderately saturated bright dark red. Pristine, precise scents of blackberry, dark cherry, violet and crushed-rock minerality. Densely packed and sharply delineated; silky if not exactly fleshy and in need of time in bottle to blossom. Wonderfully pure flavors of dark berries, flowers, licorice and bitter chocolate. Finishes with suave, broad tannins and terrific mounting juicy persistence. - Stephen Tanzer

  • 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.
