Domaine A-F. Gros is a 10-hectare estate comprised of vineyards situated in both the C么te-de-Beaune and the C么te-de-Nuits. The talented young winemaker, Mathias Parent, possesses one of the most distinguished pedigrees in Burgundy. Through his father鈥檚 line, he is descended from 13 generations of Burgundians, including 脡tienne Parent, who supplied wine to Thomas Jefferson. Through his mother, Anne-Fran莽oise 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掳C.) maceration for 4-5 days, then fermented in thermo-regulated (34掳 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掳C. cellars for 12 months. The young wine is then assembled into neutral oak and bottled in the spring without fining or filtration.

Domaine A.F. Gros Chambolle-Musigny 2021
The domaine has five parcels across the village and blends them to make a beautiful Chambolle Musigny. Damson, spice and black forest fruit. With a fine feeling of purity, the tannic core gives the impression of firmness. This wine has excellent dimension and persistence. The 2021 Chambolle-Musigny Village, a blend of five plots, has a well-defined bouquet, red and black fruit intermixed with blood orange. The stems are neatly assimilate here. The palate is well balanced with crunchy spicy red fruit laced with pain d'epices, nicely focused on the slightly brittle finish. Fine. Drink 2025-2035.
