The Story

This arm of the Gros family own a sizeable 0.60 hectare piece of Richebourg making them equal fourth largest behind the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti who have 3.51 hectares

Anne-Francoise is the daughter of Jean and Jeanine Gros (Domaine Jean Gros) and when the family domaine was split upon her father’s retirement in 1996, Anne-Francoise, along with her brothers Michel and Bernard, received some tremendous parcels of land. All three have their own domaines and run independently. Another Gros, Anne (in Vosne-Romanee), is a cousin.

Anne-Francois married Francois Parent who had inherited vineyards in Pommard. Today, after the purchase of more vineyards, the husband and wife domaines work alongside each other and present a treasure of appellations from both the Cote du Nuits and Cote du Beaune.

Vintage 2009

A warm spring with some hail in the northern part of the Côte de Nuits. After an even flowering and a warm June, the summer arrived with variable July weather. Fortunately August was fine with a period of hot weather in the second week. September started with some rain, then became fine and warm again. A harvest of healthy, ripe grapes followed. The 2009s have all the structure packed in with rich, luscious fruit. Comparable to the 2005s. Great wines.

Written Notes

Medium-full colour. Discreet, classy, balanced and very fresh. This is subtle and brilliant on the nose. Medium-full body. Very lovely plump fruit. But not quite the grip and intensity at the end. Very fine nevertheless.
