Notes from North Berkeley Imports:
"Subtle, harmonious, supple—Burgundy from Domaine Anne Gros is intimately tied with the elegant, poised character of wines from VosneRomanée. While each cru faithfully reflects its terroir, it is terroir as translated through Anne’s expert touch, offering richer aromatics, rounder curves, silkier tannins. The combination is irresistible; so much so that Anne’s limited production is snapped up by global collectors faster and faster each vintage. To be sure, Anne Gros is one of the top winemakers in Burgundy today, which explains why her wines inspire such a cult-like following. There have been Gros family members in Vosne since the 1830s; Anne took the reins of her father’s winery (Domaine François Gros) in the late 1980s
Anne Gros simply is one of the top winemakers in Burgundy today, which explains why her wines have inspired such a cult-like following. Importantly for us, Gros personifies the sort of winemaker with whom we have always sought to work: an artisan with a clear vision of her terroir and talents, and the grace to be humble despite the weight of Burgundian tradition and family history.
Anne Gros took over her father’s winery (Domaine François Gros) in the late 1980s. Yet there have been Gros family members in Vosne since the 1830s; land holdings have split among family members for generations. Today, there are four separate wineries in Vosne owned by the extended Gros family, including Domaine Anne Gros: Gros Frere et Soeur, Anne-Francoise Gros and Michel Gros, all of whom are Anne’s cousins.
Estate holdings total just over one acre of vines in the northern section of Richebourg (climat ‘Les Verroilles’ or ‘Richebourgs’), higher up the slope. Soils are mostly brown limestone with small white stones."
