“Floral nose; crisp and juicy, lean and lively, racy and bright; tangy cherry fruit and a long finish.”

90 points, International Wine Report
“The 2017 St. Romain begins with lovely aromas of ripe forest berries, orange peel, flowers and wet stones which all emerge from the glass. On the palate this possesses a silky texture and a ripe core of red berries that expands through the mineral laced finish. This is a forward style Pinot that is drinking fantastic now, but should also cellar nicely for a decade.”

“The 2017 Saint Romain Rouge is also terrific, showing ripe red and black raspberry, charcoal, forest floor, violets, and sappy flower aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, juicy, and lively on the palate, it has a core of sweet fruit, good acidity, and impressive length. It’s going to be even better with a year in bottle and keep through 2029.”

“The 2017 Saint-Romain Rouge bursts with aromas of sweet cherries, raspberries and spices. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, supple and succulent, with an open-knit core of tangy fruit and melting tannins. This is a charming, lighter-styled red Burgundy that would work well by the glass.”

About The Winery
Alain Gras has been working passionately since 1979 with a great respect for the land. Despite its young age, his domaine has quickly established itself as the standard-bearer for the village of Saint-Romain. It now extends over 30 acres, primarily located in Saint-Romain, Meursault, and Auxey-Duresses. Vinified with care and using traditional methods, the domaine's wines exemplify the character of this terroir, which Alain Gras sums up in three words: fresh, fruity, and elegant. Alain remains one of the most fervent supporters of the wines of Saint-Romain and recently has been joined by his son, Arthur, in his quest to make his wines a reference point for all of Burgundy.
