Burghound, April 2012,
This is quite deeply pitched with a broadly ranging nose of diverse elements that include spice, red and blue pinot fruit, plum, lavender and violets. There is excellent size, weight and richness to the detailed and very well delineated flavors that possess outstanding depth and length on the balanced and mouth coating finish.Drink: 2022+
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.
One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
