2014 Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas, A-F Gros: “Virtually every vintage this is the best of the three Vosne villages cuvées” AM

Domaine AF Gros, owned by Anne-Françoise Parent, has impressive holdings in some of Burgundy’s finest vineyards including Vosne-Romanée, Echézeaux and Richbourg and has a reputation for making beautifully elegant, age worthy wines. Anne-Francoise’s children, Caroline and Mathias Parent, run the estate and continue to make extremely classic wines.

The 2014 vintage was a challenge for growers but there were some remarkable achievements. The reds have a similar profile to the 2008s, which were vibrant and refreshing, but they are more concentrated with deeper flavours according to Matthias.

We recently tasted a selection of older Burgundies from our cellar including the 2014 Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas – we can confirm that it is indeed starting to sing! Finely balanced and extremely elegant with supple flavours, this wine is ‘utterly delicious’ according to Allen Meadows.

This wine displays just about the right amount of bottle age, with some lovely secondary characters starting to evolve, whilst having plenty in the tank to age with ease for another 8 to 10 years.

“As it is virtually every vintage this is the best of the three Vosne villages cuvées with its layered nose where a background whisper of wood is sufficiently faint to allow the ripe aromas of highly spiced black raspberry, lilac and red currant to shine. There is excellent vibrancy and volume to the utterly delicious and medium weight flavors that possess fine depth and length on the firm but balanced finale” 89 – 91 points, Allen Meadows
