2005 Domaine Af Gros Pommard Les Pezerolles
"Solid and closed, this is a block of tannins, flesh and acidity, with cherry and menthol notes locked up tight. Though it's hard to see all the facets, the finish is long and sweet. Best from 2012 through 2022. 180 cases made." -90 points Wine Spectator
"The domaine was established in 1988 when the parents of Anne-FranÃ§oise, Jean and Jeanine Gros of Vosne-RomanÃ©e decided to let go of a few parcels of the family domaine (The domaine was initially known under the names of Gros-Renaudot, then Louis Gros, and after inheritance, Jean Gros). At the same time Anne-FranÃ§oise aquired a domaine in Flagey-Ã‰chezeaux, and later with her husband, FranÃ§ois Parent, purchased a vineyard in Savigny-les-Beaune."
"Shortly thereafter, FranÃ§ois added to the domaine his own vineyards in Pommard that he inherited from his family. Being the 13th generation of winemakers, he continues to aquire knowledge and techniques that enable him to vinify his wines so that they express the typicity and complexity of the aromas of the Pinot Noir. Together they decided to unite the two domaines and install in Beaune the caves, cuverie and buildings."
"Deep red, when young has a floral nose...Rose and peonies, but also reminds one a red fruits; these are the characteristics of the Pinot Noir. It is ample, rich, and powerful on the palate. Only after a few years, one can find the sweet taste of prunes and chocolate. This wine will remain clean and fresh. To be served between 4 and 10 years." -Winery
