Vintage 2008

 An indifferent spring caused uneven flowering and mildew risk. At the end of June the weather changed for the better, continuing into July.

Written Notes

2008 Vosne-Romanée 1er cru Clos de Reas Monopole, Michel Gros Open nose that's bursting with floral notes, herbs, eucalyptus and mint. There is also a very evident toasty oak note that's on the verge of being over the top. Luckily it remains just in the shadows of the fruit and not the other way around. Full palate with an excellent mix of sweet and sour fruit that perfectly hides the oak which gives away just the faintest hints of complex spices backed up by the hallmark herbaceous, minty notes of Clos de Reas. This is concentrated but perfectly balanced and long, very young however and will need medium term cellaring to come around. Excellent vintage for Clos de Reas 92p 2018-2028
