Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 98
James Suckling

This is really spicy and intense with ripe strawberries and cherries, yet plenty of nutmeg and a touch of dried fruit, too. The palate is full and so layered, plush and structured. Lots of hazelnut character to the fruit. This really needs five or six years to soften. Try after 2026.

BH 92

A background application of wood frames the high-toned herbal tea, red currant, cherry, earth and soft earth-suffused aromas. There is more size, weight and volume to the nicely concentrated and vibrant middle weight plus flavors that also reflect a hint of acid tang on the solidly complex and sneaky long finish.

Domaine Gros Frere et Soeur, France
The name 'Gros' is particularly ubiquitous in Vosne-Romanée where, following the splitting up of Jean Gros' large vineyard holdings between his four children in 1964, there are now multiple domaines operating under the Gros name. Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur is one of the most significant of these domaines, being formed of the amalgamation of two inheritances, and includes Grand Cru vines in Clos Vougeot, Echezeaux and Richebourg. The wines are amongst Burgundy's richest and most extracted, with plenty of heft and intense fruit character to stand up to extensive use of new oak. Bernard Gros replanted a large part of his holdings in the 1980s and it will be very exciting to see how good the wines become as the vineyards continue to mature. For many years, Bernard Gros declassified his parcel of Echezeaux and Vosne “Chaumes” Premiers Cru into the village level Vosne Romanee, which made it one of the best values around. Now that there are enough high quality grapes coming from those vineyards, however, Bernard will make an Echezeaux and Vosne “Chaumes” every year. Value hunters shouldn’t be too disappointed though as some of the grapes from Echezeaux and “Chaumes” will be declassified into the new Vosne Romanee Premiers Cru (no vineyard designate) as well as the village Vosne. While the wines of Gros Frere definitely reflect the character of each vineyard, they are made in a distinct style. They are very ripe, intensely concentrated and aged in relatively high percentages of new, high toast oak barrels. The toast imparts a nice spicy character which is well balanced by the intense fresh fruit flavors.

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

Containing the largest Grand Cru in all of the Côte d’Or, Vougeot, the village, takes its name from the small stream flowing through it, called Vouge. Over three quarters of the village retains Grand Cru status, and a single vineyard at that: Clos de Vougeot (or simply, Clos Vougeot). Its mass—over 50 ha—retains the single name chiefly for historic reasons.

But today, Clos de Vougeot contains over 80 owners and shows significant soil and slope variations within its boundaries. The top, bordering Musigny and Grands Echezeaux, is calcareous and gravelly on oolitic limestone and exhibits wonderful drainage. The middle sections are limestone, gravel and clay with less of a slope. The lower part has little slant and is mostly made of clay. Historically the diverse parcels were blended but today the abundance of owners means that everyone has his own style. Exploring and understanding them is part of the allure of Clos de Vougeot.

In general a fine Clos de Vougeot when young will be dense and dark but juicy, with a pronounced austerity, and needs a good ten years to bring it to its full potential.

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.”
