Noticeable oak spice frames reluctant earthy, complex and layered black fruit aromas that lead to sexy, round, fresh and surprisingly forward and supple flavors. The wood influence is still pronounced though it's not as strong as it was last year from cask and there is excellent volume and mid-palate density and intensity. This is beautifully balanced and quite powerful on the finish, all wrapped in firm but fine tannins and this will very likely need at least a decade to be at its best. A terrific effort.
Clos Vougeot did particularly well in 2002, and Anne Gros’ Grand Maupertui is no exception. Roses, violets, and assorted red fruits are found in the aromatic profile of this fresh, medium-bodied wine. Broad, satin-textured, and packed with blackberries, red cherries, raspberries, and spices, it is pure, concentrated, dense, and exhibits a long, fruit-packed finish. (PR)
Medium red. Perfumed aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate, violet and licorice. Sweet, supple and broad; more pleasing today than the village wine. Powerful, spicy and harmonious. Finishes with terrific persistence of fruit and lingering perfume. A superb 2002, and one that may be even better with five or six years of additional bottle aging. (ST)
