Goedhuis, December 2020
The domaine has five parcels across the village and blends them to make a characterful and quintessential Chambolle Musigny. A very pleasing wine, with striking red cherry flavours. This is graceful and charming with a lovely appealing succulence, velvety tannins and a fine finish.

A pretty if somewhat somber nose reluctantly exhibits ripe aromas of violet, black cherry and spicy top notes. There is a lovely sense of refinement to the delineated and energetic flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the lingering finale. This will need to develop more depth to merit the top end of my projected range but it's already lovely. Outstaning Top value. Drink 89-91

From five little plots. Glowing fresh purple. This is so suave, as always, but with a firmer finish. Good balance though and fair length. Usually the Chambolle is a good cuvée here and we are not let down this time. 4 stars
Domaine Anne-Françoise Gros
The name Gros is one of the most famous in the Côte de Nuits, synonymous with great Vosne Romaneé. The original Gros domaine is now divided amongst four family members. Anne-Françoise, daughter of Jean Gros, married into another great Burgundy dynasty, the Parent family of Pommard. In 1998 François Parent and Anne Françoise combined their domaines to create a superb 10 hectare property comprising some of the finest terroirs in the Côte d’Or. Today their children Caroline and Mathias run the estate, with Mathias ever experimenting and pushing boundaries in both vineyard and cellar.
The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
