When Jean Gros retired and split his Vosne–Romanée 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 Romanée–Conti. This is what great priced burgundy should be all about.

What People Are Saying
After spending most of my nights selling wine to locals and tourists alike, it’s a relief to be able to walk into a local wine store that can give back that same level of attention and passion. Amsterdam Wine Co. will always be my go to spot on the Upper West Side for a great conversation and that perfect bottle of wine.
- Tim Rawding – Sommelier, Bar Boulud/Boulud Sud
I like wine but I don’t have the budget to drink great wines as often as I’d like. The selection at Amsterdam Wine Co. is so well chosen that I feel like I’m always drinking above my means. Great addition to the neighborhood.

There are lots of wine stores in the neighborhood and if you tend to drink the same kinds of wine all the time, there are other stores that might be more to your liking. But if you want to explore the world of wine – really get to know the multitude of wine regions and get exposed to different grapes and truly small, artisanal producers – Amsterdam Wine Co can take you on an amazing journey. Thank you, Amsterdam!
