Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas 2001, Anne-Françoise Gros
1999, 2001, 2004 and 2005 bear witness. Just as one would wish, this pinot is ruby and reflective. Appetizing aromas of mineral, flint, raspberry growing in a rock, floral. There is a hint of myrtille flavour, red berries, blood orange, savoury with a fresh finish. Beautifully evolved. Like other 2001s it has reached full maturity and soon the fruit will dry out. Perfect complement for roast chicken façon Mitch. Photo shows a bunch of pinot grapes in Vosne-Romanée on August 10th 2011.
