Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 90-93

(from a .7 ha parcel that was partially replanted in 1985 and the remainder in 1989) This is also quite cool and reserved in character with ample Asian spice notes and with reasonably well-integrated wood influence too on the mostly red fruit nose. The medium-bodied flavors possess fine intensity with nuances of jerky, currant, iron and underbrush, all wrapped in a finish that has the same coolness as the nose plus a lingering backend perfume. In sum, this is very good to excellent if not better.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2007 Richebourg is the most reticent of these 2007s, and I don't think time will do much to alter that state of affairs. The wine possesses good length and balance but only modest complexity, particularly at this level.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Rich and round, with medium weight and a bright structure supporting cherry, raspberry, spice and herb flavors. The tannins are refined and well-integrated, and this exudes sweet licorice and savory notes on the finish.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

Palish medium red. Reticent but nuanced nose hints at raspberry, spices and earth. The most intense of these 2007s but youthfully closed, with sound acid spine for the vintage giving shape to the sweet red fruit and mineral flavors. I like the wine's blend of silkiness and solidity. Finishes with a mineral firmness without coming off as hard.

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.
