Domaine Michel Gros, Vosne-Romanée Clos des Réas (monopole) 1er Cru 1999

Michel Gros Vosne Reas 1999

Fifteen years on tasting.

Glassy ruby.  Fathomless energy and brimming with seemingly unformed matière: woodland berries, cacao, shoot-smoke and leather.  Muscular and layered, almost thick.  Some tannin, fine-grained and ripe; if one could stand resolute without rigidity this would be it.  Penetrating mineralic finish.  A thundering Clos des Réas, still yet to reveal its hidden facets and innate charm.  Now – 2030+.
