Crunchy wild berry fruit and spicy coniferous floor mingle in a sapid bouquet, followed on the palate by a supple, stony character strongly marked by the rocky soils of St-Romain. A mere 12.3% alcohol, so supremely refreshing.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Saint-Romain Blanc from Domaine Alain Gras is very pretty, wafting from the glass with notes of white peach, citrus zest, pear and hazelnut. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, elegantly glossy and pure, with a lovely line of succulent acidity and a touch more amplitude and give than normal. This is a very pretty white Burgundy that’s already drinking well.
Yellow color with light gold tint, clear. Powerful nose, racy, with a smell of nuts, toast and a suggestion of vanilla. An expressive mouth with a fat and ample taste. This is a mineral wine with an elegant oaky taste and an excellent length taste.
Alain Gras has been working passionately since 1979 with a great respect for the land. Domaine Alain Gras is located in Saint-Romain, a picture-perfect village perched on a beautiful hill between Meursault and Pommard, and today extends over 12 hectares. Producing wines from fine parcels across the Saint-Romain, Auxey Durresses, and Meursault appellations, Alain describes his wines as follows: “Three words: fresh, fruity and elegant."
