Lot #40. Gros Frère et Sœur Grands Echézeaux 2009

Description: Consists of 3 Magnums, 1.5L
Score: 95 AG.
"The 2009 Grands-Echezeaux opens with knockout aromatics that meld into dark red cherries, flowers and sweet spices. This is a focused, vibrant wine endowed with considerable persistence and texture. Clean saline notes add freshness on the elegant finish . . . . I tasted these wines with Bernard Gros in his underground tasting room, which is part batcave and part piano bar. Towards the end of a long day, a change of pace from the frigid cellars of Burgundy was quite welcome. Bernard Gros harvested on the early side in 2009, which he mostly attributes to the clones he planted beginning in the mid 1980s. The fruit was completely destemmed and yields were around 40 hectoliters per hectare. Cuvaison lasted 10-12 days. After debourbage the wines were racked into new oak barrels. Gros left the wines on their fine lees for 12 months, and did some batonnnage pre-malo." Wine Advocate #194, May 2011
