2012 Domaine Michel Gros Vosnee Romanee 1er Cru “Aux Brulees”

140.00

Wine Advocate: 91-93 Points

The 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Aux Brulees comes from vines that border the Richebourg owned by Michel? brother Bernard (see Gros Frere & Soeur). It has quite a powerful, intense bouquet with black fruit, dark plum and touches of dried violet petals that shows impressive finesse. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe, almost sinewy tannins that lend this premier cru very good weight. What it needs is a little more tension and terroir to filter through on the finish. Still, there is a lovely tingle of lemongrass on the aftertaste to be enjoyed: another fine Aux Brulees to add to many others this year.

Burghound: 90-93 Points

An ultra-spicy if brooding nose is composed of fresh and ripe dark pinot, cassis, plum and sandalwood scents. This is also quite succulent with opulent medium-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of extract that buffers the moderately firm tannic spine on the mineral-infused finish that displays excellent length and simply terrific complexity. This very generous and fleshy effort should be approachable young.
