Vosne-Romanée Maizières, 2012, Domaine A. F. Gros
Here too there is enough wood to notice but not to dominate the attractively spicy nose that blends both red and blue pinot fruit with earth and floral hints.
There is once again fine concentration to the serious, brooding and relatively powerful middle weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the complex, balanced, persistent and moderately austere finish.
This will certainly need a few years of bottle age to become more approachable.
