Burghound Domaine Michel Gros, 2013 Gros Vosne Romanee A.C.
"(from 3 different parcels in Aux Réas, La Columbière and Au-Dessus de la Rivière; raised in ~35% new wood). Here too there is enough wood to remark on framing the very spicy red and dark currant aromas that display a subtle liqueur-like quality. There is also excellent richness as well as fine mid-palate volume and concentration to the seductively textured medium-bodied flavors, all wrapped in a suave yet firm and mildly austere finale. This is a fine Vosne villages that should reward 6 to 8 years of cellar time. (88-91)" –April 2015
Three parcels compose this cuvée: Aux Réas, Au-Dessus de la Rivière, & La Colombière. All three are located close to the village, the last two
being located on conglomerates of clay limestone on Oligocene strata, which are called “Salmon conglomerates” because of their salmon-pink
color. “Les Réas” lays on hard limestone soils on Bajocian strata. These marl-limestone blocks produce very soft and elegant wines. Aged 18
months in French oak barrels (30% to 40% new depending on the vintage).
