Jason’s Pick: Domaine Michel Gros Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits

When Jean Gros retired and split his VosneRomanée domaine between his two sons Bernard and Michel and their cousin Anne some very serious decisions were made. Anne and Bernard both received parcels of some Burgundy’s greatest vineyards; Richebourg and Échezeaux and Clos du Vougeot vineyards. Michel on the other hand gave up these Grand Cru vineyards all for the jewel in the family crown; the fabled monopole vineyard ‘Clos des Réas’ (yes we have some in store) and a greater array of other vineyards. The Hautes Côtes de Nuits from Michel Gros is testament to his good decision making. Michel’s Hautes Côtes de Nuits is powerful yet supple, dark fruited yet with fine tannins. If you wonder about the pedigree of this wine you can throw a stone from this vineyard down the hill into La Tâche and la RomanéeConti. This is what great priced burgundy should be all about.
