A. F. Gros Pommard 1C Les Pezerolles 2016
- Burgundy,Cote de Beaune
- Pinot Noir
Once again there is enough reduction and oak toast to push the underlying fruit to the background. There is good freshness in the mouth as the vibrant and well-detailed medium-bodied flavors also possess a relatively refined mouth feel though the delicious and persistent finish is slightly sweet. This sweetness may dissipate once the wood treatment is better integrated though at present it's not subtle. Drink: 2022+ - BH88~91
The domaine was established in 1988 when the parents of Anne-Françoise, Jean and Jeanine Gros of Vosne-Romanée decided to let go of a few parcels of the family domaine (The domaine was initially known under the names of Gros-Renaudot, then Louis Gros, and after inheritance, Jean Gros).
At the same time Anne-Françoise aquired a domaine in Flagey-Échezeaux, and later with her husband, François Parent, purchased a vineyard in Savigny-les-Beaune.
Shortly thereafter, François added to the domaine his own vineyards in Pommard that he inherited from his family. Being the 13th generation of winemakers, he continues to aquire knowledge and techniques that enable him to vinify his wines so that they express the typicity and complexity of the aromas of the Pinot Noir.
Together they decided to unite the two domaines and install in Beaune the caves, cuverie and buildings.
