"A subtle but not invisible note of wood serves as a backdrop for the overtly spicy and quite floral aromas of lavender, lilac and violet that add breadth to the mostly dark berry fruit scents. There is excellent richness and volume to the suave and caressing medium weight flavors that brim with tannin-buffering dry extract, all wrapped in a fleshy if mildly austere finale that delivers very fine persistence. This is sufficiently structured to require at least a decade of bottle age." (BH)

Winery Notes:
It was in 1830 that the GROS family set up in Vosne-Romanée. Today, Michel GROS, sixth generation of this dynasty of winemakers, continues and develops the work undertaken by his ancestors, as do his sister (Domaine AF Gros), his brother (Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur) and his cousin (Domaine Anne Gros). Passionate but also very rigorous, Michel GROS brings constant care to the development of his wines, by mastering all the stages of production, from vine through to bottling. Modest and unassuming, he expresses himself through his wines: generous, fine, elegant, of reliable and even quality.
