Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru. Domaine Michel Gros 2013

Member Review by dbhonig:

Did you ever accidentally open a MUCH better bottle than you intended to? Then had to decide between freaking out and relaxing to enjoy it? I just did that. I decided to enjoy it.The color is translucent, red, but just a little bricked, just enough to make the color soft, rather than bright.The nose starts with a nice barnyard funk. Cloves, lilacs, black currants and black raspberries. The nose just keeps getting more complex, new scents every minute. The taste is a little sharp, not just, just sharp. Man I wish i'd saved this. What a screw-up. Okay, back to enjoying it. This one really needs more time. There is meat, a bit of tar, plenty of plum, raspbery, blackcurrants, and florals. It is closed now, but there is a lot there laying in wait.I am going to revisit this tomorrow night. Perhaps a day of exposure will quick-age it.

It was in 1830 that the GROS family set up in Vosne-Romanée. Today, Michel GROS, sixth generation of this dynasty of winemakers, continues and develops the work undertaken by his ancestors, as do his sister (Domaine AG Gros), his brother (Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur) and his cousin (Domaine Anne Gros). Passionate but also very rigorous, Michel GROS brings constant care to the development of his wines, by mastering all the stages of production, from vine through to bottling. Modest and unassuming, he expresses himself through his wines: generous, fine, elegant, of reliable and even quality. Michel GROS and all his team invite you to discover this universe of hard work and exigency, but also of sharing and passion. Read less

Second night, and this is still tight as a drum. Add some caramel and a wagonload of violets, fringed with roses. The tannins are there, soft but full. I need to look in the couch cushions for enough to buy another one of these to put away.
