Average critic rating : 92.25 points



Moderately strong oak tussles with the earthy and ripe aromas for center stage and it continues onto the iron-infused, somber and intense flavors that are big, opulent and weighty and culminate in a rich, full and well-muscled finish. The firm tannins are suave and the backend explosive and while this is carrying plenty of oak, there is so much mid-palate density that the wine should be able to integrate it with a few years in bottle. I certainly hope so because the underlying material is seriously impressive. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Jan01,2007



The Anne Gros 2005 Clos Vougeot Le Grand Maupertui offers aromas of plum, blackberry, vanilla, wood smoke, black tea, and tincture of iodine. Charred meat flavors join the purple and black fruits on the palate, and here, too, a toasted, resinous, slightly detached note of new wood is evident. The wine finishes with genuine grand cru length, and has density, girth, and underlying structure that suggest waiting the better part of a decade – which may also bring better integration of the oak – before pulling a cork.
