Anne Gros Bourgogne Hautes Cotes De Nuits 2016
Anne Gros cares for her vineyards sustainably, adhering to organic practices as much as possible depending on the conditions of the growing year.
Grapes are always harvested by hand. Juice is fermented on indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks for both white and red wines.
In recent years, Anne Gros has been cutting back on her use of new oak barrels. As of the 2017 vintage, the estate uses one-third new barrels, one-third one-year barrels, and one-third two-year barrels, for all red Burgundy.
A fresh, young, and vibrant Pinot—clear light ruby with clean aromas of tart red fruit, black cherry, and oak. Dry, with high acid and grippy tannins. Crisp layers of strawberry, red cherry, and raspberry on the palate with some minerality on the profile. Light-medium bodied with decent length. Very accessible now.
