Burgundy sensations 2010

We met with one oh the most famous female winemakers in Burgundy, Anne Gros. When Anne succeeded her father back in 1988 the domaine covered roughly three hectares while today, it has grown to almost seven. The latest addition came in 2007: the Grand Cru Echezeaux, all located in the lieu-dit of Les Loachausses which was returning after a 25 year lease to Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur. Today, Anne fully devoted herself to biodynamic winegrowing and the results are quite convincing. The 2010 Clos Vougeot le Grand Maupertui reveals hints of grenadine, smoke and strawberries while on palate, this medium-bodied Pinot Noir comes along with wonderful texture, good structure and remarkable intensity. After this treat, we moved on the 2010 Echezeaux les Loachausses, whichrepresents Anne Gros'fourth commercialized vintage for this Grand Cru, showing off with a beatiful perfume of high-tonedherbs, red fruits and elusive suggestions of peat and salt. Complimented by subtly soothing of texture and creaminess. I suspect this well built beauty will provide pleasure for at least 15 years. The 2010 Richebourg is without a doubt the most precious wine in Anne Gros'portfolio. It towers with its imposing stature and regal personnality. Backward, cool and laced with gorgeous dark red fruits, the 2010 Richebourg is somewhat closed in on itself, but it should be a pearl of a wineonce it starts to blossom in bottle, whish could very well take over decade. I'm thrilled to see Anne Gros at the peak of her career as a brilliant winemaker and am looking forward to many subsequent vintages from her.
