Goedhuis, December 2019
The Gros parcel of Echezeaux is one of the finest in the appellation, planted with 90 year old vines. A truly outstanding wine in 2018 which almost outshone the Richebourg on the day of tasting! The only wine to be whole bunch pressed in the cellar (20%), this is a wonderfully seductive style with pure alpine fruits. Poised, refined and elegant, this is beautifully in balance. Fabulous.
Neal Martin, January 2020,
The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a broody bouquet with dark berry fruit laced with black tea and touches of leather. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, almost "chunky" tannins. This is not a graceful Echézeaux but there is plenty of substance with a judicious touch of spice on the finish. Fine, but give it time. 2023-2036
Burghound, April 2020,
Admirably discreet wood frames the fresh and notably spicy liqueur-like red berry fruit, earth and discreet floral aromas. The delicious, intense and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors possess more size and weight if a bit less refinement before concluding in a balanced and strikingly long finale that offers just a bit more depth.

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.
