Anne functions both as vigneron and winemaker. The winery was formerly known as Francois Gros until Anne took over in 1988. According to Clive Coates, "Since 1993 Anne Gros has produced some of the finest wines in Burgundy." I would agree wholeheartedly with that statement and I would by her wines by the case if I could afford them.
Holdings: Richebourg, Echezeaux, Clos de Vougeot, village Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanee. Old vines, some vineyards average 55 years. Even village vineyards are rubbing shoulders with premier and grand cru vineyards often high on the hill with northern exposure.
2005 Domaine Anne Gros Bourgogne
12.5% alc., 2005 Domaine Anne Gros Bourgogne 12.5% alc., $30. Imported by Atherton Wine Imports, Atherton, CA. Located in Vosne-Romanee, Anne Gros (right) is one of the new generation of Burgundian winemakers. She followed in her father’s winemaking footsteps in 1988 and started Domaine Anne Gros in 1995. Her wines are known for their silkiness and preciseness. · This wine is a real winner, a diamond in the rough. The nose is typically Burgundian with musk, earth, and baby diaper. The symphony of vivid, fresh red fruit flavors are glorious and mouth filling. The texture is plush and milky. Tannins are reigned in and the raspberry kiss on the lengthy finish is quite nice. Impressive for a wine of this level. Website: www.anne-gros.com. Reviewed October 14, 2007 ARTICLE »
