Anne Gros, the only daughter of François Gros, has established a solid character and reputation in the wine world after taking over her father’s domaine in 1988. At 25 years old, Anne saw the family domaine grow from 7 to 16 acres. Recently, she invested in a new cellar. She is a winegrower suspicious of certitude and fastidious about maintaining her freedom.
As a woman winegrower, Anne knew how to prove herself and convince all who doubted of her ability to manage a domaine. She showed that she had not only the shoulders but the head to make her family heritage one of the greatest domaines of Burgundy. In 1984 she had to stop studying Arts to study vines’culture and oenology in Beaune and Dijon. Now her passion for vine and wine as well as her talent, sensitivity and professionalism posit her as a winemaker enthusiasts can rely on. Anne Gros has always been concerned about the environment, however she did not always find what she was looking for. so with this conviction, Anne Gros continued her approach to ecology without the recognition of organic certification
The first harvest of this wine was 1999, Now the vines are mature and bringing very expressive fruit. This 4 acre single block parcel is situated in the commune of Concoeur just above the village of Vosne-Romanée. Originally bare of any vines, it was planted in stages (1996, 1997 and 1998). Chardonnay vines make up 2.4 acres on the upper part of the slope, where the earth is deeper and more humid (this is where the water of the hillside resurges).
On the land itself: is an area rarely exceeding 300 metres in altitude in the west. the geographical diversity of burgundy leads to a diversity of climates and the existence of numerous micro-climates. the average annual insolation is 2000 hours, the average temperature is 11.5 degrees celsius. the côte de nuits is carved out of jurassic limestone. as its name suggests, the côte has a fairly steep slope. the clay-limestone complexes, the different sun exposures and the climatic data resulting from the shaping of the combes perpendicular to the fault line of the coast give us a very fragmented pdo classification system.
Highly recommended with raw or grilled fish, shellfish in a court-bouillon, white meat, charcuterie without garlic and goat cheese.
Fantastic Burgundy and not easy to find due to its limit production. Try it while you can
