Goedhuis, December 2015
Brilliant shining cherry red colour, wonderfully scented full of vibrant red cherry fruits, with hints of cinnamon spice. In the palate the initial bright linear purity gives way to a feeling of subtle generosity. A wonderfully complete style of wine, with a reserve of tannic structure.
Neal Martin, December 2015,
The 2014 Richebourg Grand Cru clearly has the best bouquet amongst the A.F. Gros range: wonderful, minerally red berry fruit, dried flowers and just a hint of warm gravel in the background. It gains intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. The acidity is very well judged and there is a creamy texture lending harmony to this Richebourg. I do think it is the most complex Richebourg I have tasted from the domaine in recent years, but it is one of the most sensual. Give it 8-10 years in bottle so that it can show what it can do.

100% new oak. A little darker and spicier than the Échezeaux on the nose, more handsome than seductive. But there’s a fine sweetness on the palate and a suppleness that suggests it would be broachable before the Échezeaux. Finely textured, refined and very long. Tightens up on the finish, boding well for the future. (JH) Drink 2020-2030
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.
Richebourg is one of the six Grand Cru vineyards in Vosne Romanée consisting of 8ha which is shared between 10 producers including Domaine de la Romanée Conti, Domaine Alain Hudelot-Noellat and Domaine Meo-Camuzet. Richebourg is based mainly on limestone deposits with some clay making the wines robust and voluptuous with a long life expectancy
