Wine Advocate: 90
"The Gros 2006 Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d’Orveau – from high above the Clos Vougeot, but in a fog-trapping and therefore rot-prone dimple that in this instance necessitated relatively early harvest – displays brightness and purity of red fruits typical for this bottling, as well as chalky and saline mineral notes. The texture is silken and the wine's modest endowment of tannins well woven-in. The virtues of the vintage seem perfectly suited to the virtues of this site, and one ends up with a wine impeccably pure, uplifting and invigorating if not especially complex. Anne Gros's 2006s were bottled after only 15 months to preserve the fruit and charm of a vintage she envisages for near-term enjoyment. This is a vintage whose strong suits are characteristics she regularly says she prizes above all – elegance, charm, lift – perhaps one reason why she has been particularly successful." (Dec 2009)
