Hautes Côtes de Nuits Blanc 2008, Gros Frère et Soeur
The wines from this famous domaine are made by Bernard Gros in Vosne-Romanée. He is the brother of Anne-François Gros. This 2008 chardonnay from the Hautes Côtes above Vosne is remarkably ripe: floral, melon, apricot and pear aromas wash out of the glass. Fresh and full-flavoured on the palate there isn't much minerality. Could work well with an "eggs and bacon" crêpe complète.
