A background touch of wood frames an earthy and notably complex, layered and densely fruited nose that merges into rich, full, sweet and mouth coating flavors that are exceptionally fresh and intense on the beautifully long finish. This has already eaten most of its wood and I like this for its completeness. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Jan 01, 2008

Tart but ripe black raspberry and cassis are allied to tobacco and singed meat in the Gros 2006 Clos Vougeot Le Grand Maupertui, which offers a flattering creamy richness yet an invigorating sense of vivacity. The bitter side of its black fruits, its meatiness, and stony notes gain prominence in the wine's long, formidably intense, and positively frisky finish. Such a youthfully charming and enticing Clos Vougeot you won't often encounter, although I am confident it will be worth following for at least a decade. 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.
