Domaine A-F. Gros

WHO WE ARE

Domaine A-F. Gros is a 10-hectare estate comprised of vineyards situated in both the Côte-de-Beaune and the Côte-de-Nuits. The talented young winemaker, Mathias Parent, possesses one of the most distinguished pedigrees in Burgundy. Through his father’s line, he is descended from 13 generations of Burgundians,  including Etienne Parent, who supplied wine to Thomas Jefferson. Through his mother, Anne-Françoise Gros (daughter of Jean Gros), Mathias traces his roots to the storied Louis Gros in the early 19th century. Mathias shares management of the domaine with his sister, the charming and capable Caroline Parent. The Domaine today includes vineyards, mostly Pinot Noir,  inherited through both lines of the family.

The winemaking here is traditional and straightforward. After manual harvest and careful sorting, the grapes are 100% de-stemmed and subjected to cold (5°C.) maceration for 4-5 days, then fermented in thermo-regulated (34° C. max.) stainless steel tanks for an additional 2-3 weeks, during which there is some pigeage and remontage.  The wine is then racked into oak barrels (40% new for villages, 66% new 1er Cru, 100% new Grand Cru) and aged in the 12°C. cellars for 12 months. The young wine is then assembled into neutral oak and bottled in the spring without fining or filtration.
