Gros Hautes-Côtes de Nuits “Au Vallon” 2019
The 2019 vintage at Michel Gros is dazzling and delicious. Like much else in 2019, the reds show exceptional concentration. A cool spring delayed flowering to mid-June (once considered normal) and after a warm, dry summer, the domaine harvested perfectly clean fruit under sunny mid-September conditions.
The 2019 Au Vallon is beautifully floral, with bright red fruits alongside notes of stones, wild strawberries, and wildflower honey. The mouth is smooth and delicious; Burghound found “beguiling intensity,” predicting it will repay up to 5 years of cellaring.
