The Clos de Vougeot wines of the Gros family holdings, divided between the different branches of the family, often carry the name of the parcel. This, from Grand Maupertuis, at the top end of the vineyard, is a structured but rich wine, with some red jelly flavors and sweetness. The tannins are there, but relatively subdued.
