Domaine Anne GROS (Vosne-Romanée) -- 2015 Tasted from Tank and from Barrel

Harvesting here began on 7 September on the Côte de Nuits and on 19 September for the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits. The Clos Vougeot had high yields, but the others had smaller, but not catastrophic, yields. 

All grapes were destemmed, as is customary here. Malolactic fermentations began in January and February and went rather fast. As usual, the wines are bottled early here, and they were already in stainless steel awaiting bottling when I visited in mid-November 2016. Alcohols are about 13º for the regional appellations, 13.5º for the rest. (Continue reading here.)
