A. F. Gros Vosne Romanee Aux Reas 2015
- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
- Pinot Noir
This is also on the toasty side but stops short of dominating the spicy display of plum, violet, red cherry and Asian-style tea aromas. The toast also transfers to the super sleek, even satin-textured medium-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract that helps to buffer the moderately firm tannins shaping the complex and highly energetic finish. This is a bit woodier than I prefer but there is no doubting the excellent underlying quality.- BH89-92
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.
