Winemaker Notes

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru is showing brilliantly from bottle, soaring from the glass with a complex aromatic mélange of raspberries, plums, Egyptian musk, espresso roast, Asian spices and rose petal. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and satiny, with superb depth and concentration at the core, an auspicious sense of structural tension and reserve and a long, fragrant and expansive finish.
BH 94
Burghound.com
This is quite firmly reduced today and other than a touch of wood, nothing else is perceptible. Otherwise the mouth coating and broad-shouldered flavors ooze with a very fine minerality that continues onto the austere, focused, linear, backward and almost painfully intense finish that delivers spectacular length. This is presently very compact and not really revealing much of anything but the intrinsic stuffing appears to be present such that this should come together if allowed at least 6 to 8 years of bottle age though note well that it will require all of the 15 years that I suggest to arrive at its full potential.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
D 94
Decanter
A rich bouquet of black cherry, cassis, bitter chocolate, potpourri and incipient game bird precedes a full-bodied, broad and textural wine with an ample chassis of fine tannins, a deep core of fruit, and a moderately long, flavourful finish. After the fabulous 2015, the 2016 has big shoes to fill, but it is a creditable Richebourg in a challenging vintage.

Domaine Anne Gros Winery Image
Subtle, harmonious, supple—Burgundy from Domaine Anne Gros is intimately tied with the elegant and poised character of wines from Vosne-Romanée. While each cru faithfully reflects its terroir, it is terroir as translated through Gros’ expert touch, offering richer aromatics, rounder curves, silkier tannins. The combination is irresistible, so much so that Gros’ very limited production is snapped up by global collectors faster and faster each vintage. Anne Gros simply is one of the top winemakers in Burgundy today, which explains why her wines have inspired such a cult-like following. Importantly for us, Gros personifies the sort of winemaker with whom we have always sought to work: an artisan with a clear vision of her terroir and talents, and the grace to be humble despite the weight of Burgundian tradition and family history. Anne Gros took over her father’s winery (Domaine François Gros) in the late 1980s. Yet there have been Gros family members in Vosne since the 1830s; land holdings have split among family members for generations. Today, there are four separate wineries in Vosne owned by the extended Gros family, including Domaine Anne Gros: Gros Frere et Soeur, Anne-Francoise Gros and Michel Gros, all of whom are Anne’s cousins.

Vosne-Romanee Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

This is the village for the most die-hard Burgundy fanatics. Vosne-Romanée has for many hundreds of years been the source of the most sought-after Pinot Noir in Burgundy. The village claims six Grands Crus—and some of the most famous at that—but in other villages where owners manage tiny parcels or a few rows of any one vineyard, monopolies dominate the Grands Crus of Vosne-Romanee.

Of these monopolies, Domaine Romanee-Conti (DRC) reigns supreme, claiming not only more total vineyard area than any other producer, but outright owning the entirety of two of the Grands Crus and a majority of two others. In its full possession are naturally Romanée-Conti, as well as La Tâche. DRC also owns most of Richebourg and Romanée-St-Vivant. The final two, La Grande Rue and La Romanée are completely owned by other other produers: François Lamarche and Comte Liger Belair, respectively.

While one could spend a lifetime on the puzzles of land ownership in Burgundy, the point is that Vosne-Romanee contains the most valuable pieces of vineyard real estate in the world. Pinot Noir from any of its vineyards—especially from within its 27ha of Grand Cru or 58 ha of Premier Cru land—is going to rank among the best.

The most outstanding wines from this village have everything: finesse and elegance coupled with the body and sturdiness for incredibly long aging ability. They are intensely floral and exotically spiced. Beautifully ripe, complex and ephemeral throughout, they are robust, yet fine-grained in texture. These wines will stay gorgeous for the long haul.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
