Echezeaux Grand Cru Domaine A F Gros, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France 2015
100% Pinot Noir
"Cask sample. 100% new oak. Mid cherry. Super-subtle on the nose. Really shy in its dark-fruited nature. Lovely sweetness on the palate, oak sweetness, I would say, but the dark fruit meshes well with the oak. Elegant, dry, long." (JH) Julia Harding MW 17.5/20 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.
