GROS FRERE ET SOEUR
Domaine Gros frère et soeur: fine Burgundy wines
The frere et soeur we are talking about are Colette and Gustave, sons of Louis Gros, who in 1963 founded his company in Vosne-Romanée, among the most renowned areas of the Cote de Beaune, in Burgundy.
The Domaine is made up of 20 hectares including 4 plots of Grands Crus (Richebourg, Echezeaux, Grands-Echezeaux and Clos-de-Vougeot), approximately one hectare of Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru and just over 3 hectares of Vosne-Romanée village.
In 1984 Gustave suddenly dies and his son Bernard takes his place, making changes to the Domaine such as the expansion of the vineyards or the replacement of weaker plants, with new clones of higher quality.
Bernard has also decided to give the company a youthful imprint, both in the vineyard and in the cellar where he prefers short macerations and long refinements in first passage barrels.
