Clos des Reas is the only premier cru monopole in Vosne Romanée. The current walls that encompass the vineyard were built between 1800 and 1810, the Gros family purchasing the 2.12 hectare vineyard in 1860. The high walls and buildings to the east protect the vineyard from the harsh cool winds from the north and east. In regard to soil, it is a little different, and in turn results in a supremely elegant wine - the top 50 centimetres is a red soil with limestone, the subsoil is oligence marlwith salmon veins and large limestone blocks. The result is a wine with finesse and suppleness. We asked for a vertical of Clos des Reas as it is of particular interest to myself and other enthusiasts to understand this vineyard a little more. Tasting Note: More classic Vosne fruit and spice that is quite hard to pinpoint in words. There is an underlying strawberry, raspberry musk that leads into what seems to be a very large amount of dry extract. The palate is so so so powerful in the finest form. Mouth filling fine structure that seems to be ever present. - Jono Hersey, FWC
