Masterful. Red Burgundies can be some of the most expensive wines in the world. On release they can reach into the thousands of dollars; on the auction block years later, many times that. But outlandish investment isn’t required for high-quality red Burgundy. In a top of the line domaine, everything is expertly made — from their Grand Crus down to their simple Bourgogne.
Today’s offer is for the simplest wine from a master craftsman. Michel Gros makes world-famous, age-worthy red Burgundies, that are wonderful special occasion wines. But he also produces an excellent “petit vin.” For our money, it’s the best Bourgogne-level wine there is.
Silky. Gros doesn’t make much of this wine, and we’re never allocated more than a handful of cases. But if you’re a fan of elegant, Burgundian pinot noir, this is a perfect everyday version. The 2014 has a lively, clean nose showing raspberries and violets, and a whisper of smokiness. The mouth is cool and elegant, and surprisingly long for its class. Look for blackcurrant and toast.
For those new to Michel Gros, the Bourgogne is a perfect way to experience this elite winemaker’s work without breaking the bank. For readers who know Gros well, here’s a chance to upgrade your weeknight Burgundy consumption. For everyone else, this an affordable, delicious red Burgundy from a master.
