Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Medium to dark ruby-colored and exhibiting a profound, mouth-watering nose of red cherries, waxy blackberries, spices, and hints of cola, the 2002 Clos Vougeot Musigni is an exceptional effort. Armed with awesome power and concentration, this deep, satin-textured, medium to full-bodied beauty is crammed with wonderfully ripe dark fruits as well as a myriad of spices. Though intensely rich, this wine also reveals outstanding purity and freshness. In addition, its prolonged, fruit-filled, seamless finish displays sweet, supple tannin. Drink it over the next 10-14 years.

(from a 1.5 ha parcel that was replanted sequentially - 1985, 1988 and 1989; the wines carries the qualifier of Musigni because it comes from a parcel of vines at the top of Clos de Vougeot, directly across from the vineyard of Musigny) This too is not aggressively oaked though it's hardly subtle either with a flavor profile that is complex, sweet, round and delicious though I find the overall effect to be somewhat anonymous. To be sure, this is perfectly good but not distinguished.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
