Gros Frere et Soeur

Gros Frere et Soeur

The famile Gros has been producing wine in Vosne-Romaneé for over 160 years. Domaine Gros-Renaudot, as their domaine was known as, included significant holdings in the Grand Crus of Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, Grand Échézeaux, and Échézeaux.

In 1963 the Estate was divided into 4 parts, and 2 of these were combined to create Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur. The domaine is run by Bernard Gros, one of Jean Gros’ children, though the name and the holdings come from Jean’s brother and sister, Gustave and Colette Gros.

A significant portion of the estate has been replanted relatively recently, from the mid-1980s onwards, when Bernard took over from his uncle Gustave, which explains the declassification of some of the grand cru holdings into lesser appellations, and the use of the must-concentrating machine shared with Domaine Michel Gros.

The wines are vinified in cement vats and are then matured in oak casks (100% new for the Grand Crus, and 50% for the Premier Crus). New oak is used lavishly imparting a glossy overlay to those wines with enough fruit to stand up to this treatment. The wines tend to be deeply coloured, richly aromatic on the nose and full-bodied on the palate.
