Domaine Michel Gros – Au Vallon 2016 – Bourgogne, Hautes Côtes de Nuits 

The nose is fruity, elegant, well-built and very slightly powerful. It reveals notes of black cherry, cassis and small notes of berries associated with touches of wild red fruits, rose / violet, blueberry as well as very discreet hints of liquorice, tea, spices and a very discreet hint of gray pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, a slight acidulous frame, a slight suavity, roundness, a slight straightness as well as a small minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, plum and small notes of red berries associated with touches of blackberry, raspberry, discreet hints of liquorice as well as a very discreet hint of cardamom and tobacco. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
