Vosne Romanee Aux Reas Domaine A F Gros, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France 2015
100% Pinot Noir
"Cask sample. 50% new oak. Mid cherry. Lots of sweet cherry on the nose – invitingly sweet fruited. Lightish on the palate, more elegance than power. Refined tannin texture, very fine, very fresh." 16.5/20 Julia Harding MW 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.
