His two tenths of a hectare in the Clos represent just 0.4% of the vineyard - but if you had to pick a corner of Clos Vougeot for your couple rows of vines, Gros's plot is where you'd pick. The "Grand Maupertuis" is considered one of the finest "neighborhoods" in the massive vineyard, and Michel's tiny sliver of land here produces magnificent wine. The 2017 vintage is offering beautiful early drinking - Gros's village 2017s are magnificent today - and we think even the Clos Vougeot, typically Gros's longest lived wine, will not require the decade of patience it often does.

The 2017 Clos de Vougeot le Grand Maupertui Grand Cru (from a parcel just below Grands Echézeaux) is matured entirely in new oak, as usual. It has strong minty scents on the nose that remind me of an Australian McClaren Vale. The palate is medium- bodied with grainy tannin and firm grip, and that minty note continues through to the slightly blocky finish.
