An overtly toasty nose features plenty of earth and mineral notes to the mostly red and agreeably fresh red pinot fruit aromas. The stone character continues onto the seductive textured medium-bodied flavors that possess very good mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a powerful and lingering finish
Domaine A.F. Gros is a domaine based in Pommard that produces Pinot Noir at village, premier cru and grand cru levels from the communes of Pommard, Beaune, Savigny-les-Beaune, Vosne-Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny. The estate is one of three formed in 1988, when Jean and Jeanine Gros began to divide their estate (Domaine Jean Gros) among their three children, Michel, Bernard and Anne-Françoise. In addition, Colette Gros at Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur (which Bernard manages) is an aunt, while Anne Gros is a cousin. The wines are made in Beaune using a short cold maceration by Anne-Françoise's husband Francois Parent, whose share of his family estate – Domaine Parent – was added to the estate on their marriage. Parent also makes wines under his own label.
