Best known for his monopole Clos des Réas, a vineyard that produces a wine of supreme elegance, this remarkable plot has been in the family since 1860. Michel Gros has been at the head of the family domaine that now bears his name since 1975. This vineyard site is found in the southern part of Nuits-Saint-Georges and covers .82 ha. The site is named after the types of reddish flint stones found in the clay soil, called 'chailles'. The large amount of small stones within this vineyard encourages minerality in the wines produced there, and the wines are known to have more finesse and elegance than other bottlings from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Aromatically this wine has a nose of tart raspberry reduction and strongly seeped English tea. On the palate, the wine is surprisingly youthful and crisp, with delightful red fruit flavors and well-balanced acidity.
