A more elegant and higher-toned nose of appealing and distinctly cool red pinot fruit aromas merge into nicely detailed and minerally light to barely middle weight flavors that posses fine balance and focus on the persistent finish. A pretty wine that is very Chambolle in character and while it is lighter in body, the fine focus enables it to pack a punch. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Jan 01, 2008



The Gros 2006 Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d’Orveau – from high above the Clos Vougeot, but in a fog-trapping and therefore rot-prone dimple that in this instance necessitated relatively early harvest – displays brightness and purity of red fruits typical for this bottling, as well as chalky and saline mineral notes. The texture is silken and the wine's modest endowment of tannins well woven-in. The virtues of the vintage seem perfectly suited to the virtues of this site, and one ends up with a wine impeccably pure, uplifting and invigorating if not especially complex, and best suited to enjoying over the next 4-5 years. Anne Gros's 2006s were bottled after only 15 months to preserve the fruit and charm of a vintage she envisages for near-term enjoyment. This is a vintage whose strong suits are characteristics she regularly says she prizes above all – elegance, charm, lift – perhaps one reason why she has been particularly successful.
