DOMAINE ANNE GROS
The Gros family have been making excellent wine in the famous Burgundian commune
of Vosne-Romanée since 1830, when Alphonse Gros married Madame Latour and
acquired his first parcels of vines there. There were various divisions of the land until
the latest generation took over in 1995 when Jean Gros retired. The estate was, at that
point, divided amongst his three children, Michel, Bernard (bottled under the Gros Frère
et Soeur brand) and the youngest, Anne. Although all three are neighbours in the
village of Vosne-Romanée, their wine styles are very different.
Until 1994, Anne
labelled her wines under Domaine Anne and Françoise Gros (her father’s name). Her
vineyard holdings are very small, but they include the jewel in her collection: 0.6
hectares of Richebourg, first planted in around 1930. She has quickly gained a
reputation as one of the finest producers in Burgundy.
