Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Michel Gros Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Aux Brulees Pinot Noir 2013

Rated 93 by Decanter
There is enough reduction present to suppress the nose but the underlying fruit does seem ripe. There is a lovely sense of detail and tension to the middle weight plus flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the sleekly muscular, mouth coating and firmly structured finish that exhibits a mild touch of austerity. This built-to-age beauty should amply reward a decade or so of cellar time. (Burghound)
Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées was matured in 50% new oak and 50% one-year old. There is just a very slight reduction on the nose, but otherwise there are appreciable pure black cherry and iodine scents that waft from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite supple tannin. This feels silky in the mouth, very harmonious with blackcurrant and boysenberry jam on the intense finish. Very fine Michel!

Winery Domaine Michel Gros

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Whilst the Pinot Noir grape varietal has its origins in France, and is most closely associated with fine Burgundy wines, it is now grown in almost every wine producing country in the world. There are many reasons for this – the densely packed, deep black bunches of fruits are responsible for making a wide variety of excellent wines, generally agreed to be amongst the most drinkable and accessible one can find. With flavors ranging from currants and red and black berries, to more earthy, spicy notes, Pinot Noir is a versatile varietal which is revered for its relatively light body and beautifully vivid red color However, the grapes themselves are notoriously susceptible to various diseases, and struggle in fluctuating climates. This has not stopped wineries planting and cultivating these vines, though, as Pinot Noir, when grown carefully and treated properly, is a grape with a wide and increasing fan-base, and more often than not produces wonderful wines.

Region: Burgundy

There are few more famous wine regions in the world than Burgundy, and this special area has given much to raise the profile of fine French wines around the world. Although most commonly associated with excellent quality red wines made with the Pinot Noir varietal, this region is home to several red and white varietals and produces and impressive range of wines, from still to sparkling, dry to sweet, full bodied and aged, and from to light and drinkable. The region of Burgundy has been producing excellent wines for centuries, with much evidence to suggest that the ancient Gauls were the first to cultivate the native vines which flourish here in the warm summers, and on the excellent soil fed by local rivers. This type of heritage has led to a wine industry highly unique, deeply traditional, and with an exquisite reputation to uphold.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
