DOMAINE GROS FRERE ET SOEUR
Bernard Gros, whose vineyards back onto Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, produces his wines in a similar style to Michel, but very different terroir in his vineyards results in wines with more power than his brother and sister.
His quality begins with the fact he owns top quality parcels in each appellation. His Clos Vougeot-Musigni for example, is at the premier top of the cru just beneath the slope of Musigny, hence the name. One of the more conscientious producers, Bernard strictly limits his yields for the depth and concentration of fruit he seeks, and the wines are only lightly fined, never filtered. Gros Frère wines are deep and dark and whilst known for their expressive aromatics, their bigger structure and back bone means they definitely demand time in the bottle.
