Notes from the Winemaker:

The grapes of three parcels compose this cuvee which originates from the localities: «Aux Reas», «Au-Dessus de la Riviere» and «La Colombiere». All of these parcels are located close to the village, the last two being located on conglomerates of clay limestone on Oligocene strata, which are called "Salmon conglomerates" because of their salmon-pink colour. As for «Les Reas», they lay on hard limestone soils on Bajocian strata. These marls which are alternated with limestone blocks produce very soft and elegant wines.

Area: 0,92 ha
Age of the Vines: 40 years
Average Annual Production: 6,000 btls

Ratings & Reviews



88-91 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Here too there is enough wood to remark on framing the very spicy red and dark currant aromas that display a subtle liqueur-like quality. There is also excellent richness as well as fine mid-palate volume and concentration to the seductively textured medium-bodied flavors, all wrapped in a suave yet firm and mildly austere finale. This is a fine Vosne villages that should reward 6 to 8 years of cellar time." - (Jan 15, 2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2013 Vosne-Romanée Village, which is raised 50% in new oak, has a bashful nose at first, armed with blackberry and raspberry fruit, tertiary scents just behind. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. It is not the most complex Village in the village, but it is clean and pure. It just lets its foot off the accelerator a little prematurely on the finish. Drink over the next 4-5 years." - Neal Martin (Jan 2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2012 Vintage):
“The 2012 Vosne-Romanee Village is a blend of three parcels close to the village itself (Aux Reas, Au Dessus de la Riviere and La Colombiere). It has a pleasant bouquet of cranberry and raspberry fruit that demonstrates fine vivacity, albeit a little rustic compared to some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a saltiness running through this from start to finish. This is one of Michel Gros’s best wines this year and worth seeking out once released. “ – Neal Martin (Dec 2013)
