Chambolle Musigny - Domaine AF Gros - Burgundy - France
Domaine AF Gros
Anne-Françoise Gros, originally of Vosne-Romanée, is married to François Parent of Pommard, where they live, though their wines have been made in substantial premises in Beaune since 1998. Their joint living as wine-makers is ably assisted by their children Caroline (pictured) and Mathieu.
The domaine consists of Anne-Françoise’s share of Domaine Jean Gros, additional wines in and around Vosne-Romanéewhich she has bought or leased, and her husband’s share of Domaine Parent. He also offers wines under his own label, adorned with a black truffle. Her labels sport the outline of a female head, each one different according to the interpretation of the style of the appellation by Anne-Françoise and the artist.
2014 is a very classic Burgundian vintage with a better balance than 2013, the wines in a similar direction to 2012. After 12 months we will make a racking, then put the wines back into older barrels, planning to start to bottle in December and January followed by the more important wines in February/March. So we are just a little faster than for that vintage.”
