2016 Michel Gros Vosne-Romanee Clos des Reas

There`s a touch of coffee oak on this 1er Cru Clos des Reas, but very juicy, `happy` fruit, it`s that kind of wine that makes you pleased to be alive, even at 10am on a January morning in a London basement. It has a lovely texture with finely woven tannins, plenty of balanced structure and good length. (CW 10/1/18)

Neal Martin

The 2016 Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Clos des Reas has one of the most ebullient and vivacious bouquets from Michel Gros this year with red cherries, wild strawberries and a touch of blood orange in the mix. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, crisp acidity, plentiful tart red fruit with a fine structure that does not dominate toward the finish. Excellent. 90-92 points

Allen Meadows

Here the expressive nose is similar to that of the Brûlées though with a bit more wood in evidence and it can also be found on the round, velvety and very rich medium-bodied flavors that are less mineral-driven, all wrapped in a seductive, dusty and less structured finale. As is typically the case, this should be approachable on the younger side. 90-92 points

Julia Harding

Cask sample. Light to mid crimson. Delicate yet somehow intense in its fruit fragrance. Firm but creamy tannin texture, deep and long and with freshness to the end. A hint of sour cranberry on the finish. Lovely. 17 points
