Vosne Clos des Reas, Michel Gros 2016
Here the expressive nose is similar to that of the Brûlées though with a bit more wood in evidence and it can also be found on the round, velvety and very rich medium-bodied flavors that are less mineral-driven, all wrapped in a seductive, dusty and less structured finale. As is typically the case, this should be approachable on the younger side.
|Score: 90/92||Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (69), January 2018|
The 2016 Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Clos des Reas has one of the most ebullient and vivacious bouquets from Michel Gros this year with red cherries, wild strawberries and a touch of blood orange in the mix. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, crisp acidity, plentiful tart red fruit with a fine structure that does not dominate toward the finish. Excellent.
