Formerly labeled Jean Gros, until 1996. 2009 marks the 150th vintage since the Gros family bought the Clos des Réas. To celebrate this anniversary, a special label inspired by the original design has being created.
"This is also reduced but the fruit definitely seems ripe. More interesting are the energetic, detailed and solidly concentrated middle weight flavors that conclude in an equally powerful and lingering finish where a trace of warmth slowly becomes apparent. This is a relatively robust vintage for Clos des Réas and one that should age well over the mid to longer-term. Worth a look."
"This "cru" was bought by Alphonse GROS in 1860 and we have the monopoly of this appellation. The engraving at the top of the label dates back to the buying of this parcel, since my ancestors had sold this wine in bottles right from the beginning. Generation after generation, the label has been bearing the following names: GROS-GUENAUD, GROS-RENAUDOT, Louis GROS, Jean GROS and from the 1996 vintage, Michel GROS. The wall of this triangular parcel borders the village in the east. A monumental portal stands in its middle. A small and very ancient house marks the north angle, on the Town Hall square. The "Clos des Réas" is located on the hillock that overhangs the small Réas valley. The geological stratum of the subsoil is a "Salmon conglomerate" on the Oligocene strata, with, at this place, a large quantity of limestone blocks alternated with marls. This soil profile, together with the slope, ensures excellent drainage. The marls give wine the silky character of tannins, the elegance of perfumes and the slight acidity that make it easy to taste from its youngest age. However, this impression of easiness is misleading: thanks to the almost perfect balance of this wine, it can age 10 to 15 years while preserving its fruity expression and its freshness."
