Chambolle Musigny, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, A F Gros 2014
100% Pinot Noir with around 15 months in oak
"Lovely fragrance, more red than dark fruit. Juicy and scented with red fruit on the mid palate. Mouth-wateringly delicious with a long scented finish. So supple but all in balance so that the tannins are framing the fruit not suppressing it." (JH) 17/20 www.jancisrobinson.com
Anne-Françoise is Jean GROS of Vosne-Romanée‘s daughter. The Domaine AF GROS has been created in 1988 when Jean and Jeanine GROS started to transmit the family Domaine (first knew as Domaine GROS-RENAUDOT and then as Domaine Louis GROS). At the same time, Anne-Françoise acquired a Domain in Flagey Echezeaux with her husband Jean GROS and in 1995 they purchased a vineyard in Savigny les Beaune. In 1996 Jean and Jeanine GROS retired and so they divided the Jean GROS Domain between their three children Michel, Bernard and Anne-Françoise. Each Domaine is autonomous and independent (Domaine Michel GROS in Vosne Romanée, Domaine GROS Frère & Soeur directed by Bernard in Vosne Romanée, and Domaine Anne-Françoise GROS in Pommard). So there are four famous Domaines GROS.
