In the renowned village of Vosne-Romanée the many strands of the Gros family stands proud and Michel Gros has the great fortune to own the renowned Clos de Réas. This village really is a who's who of Burgundy royalty. As you enter the village Jean-Yves Bizot's house is to the right and as your turn left you pass by Michel Gros' house, Anne Gros' house and then Madame Leroy's house. A stone’s throw away from the hallowed soils of Domaine Romanée-Conti - this sleepy little village is a go-to for Burgundy aficionados. Michel has made an exceptional reputation for himself. The mantle is now being passed on to the next generation. His son Pierre is thoughtful and determined to continue the family’s reputation of quality forward. They have embarked on several new projects all of which are very exciting and with parcels set to return to the family soon, we will await more jewels. Whilst the wines are fabulously perfumed on the nose they also have a wonderful muscular side to them too. Particular mention should be given to their 7 hectare parcel of “Fontaine St Martin”- which has the same soil and subsoil as the top part of the hill of Corton – and gives wines of incredible purity and class. Nuits St Georges comes from 4 parcels on the Vosne side and is softer and open-knit, whilst Nuits “Chaliots” is on the Premeaux side and has more depth and structure. Clos des Réas, his flagship wine and a 2 hectare family owned ‘monopole’ since 1860, is magnificent.
