Domaine AF GROS is a vineyard located in Burgundy, Pommard, which was founded by Anne-Françoise GROS. The creation of the Estate dates back to 1988.
François PARENT, from Pommard, is Anne-Françoise's husband. He has been the winemaker of the Domaine's wines since its creation. Its know-how and reputation are recognized worldwide and its wines are a perfect expression of pinot noir, a unique combination of elegance and depth. The predominance of calcareous and clay soils is the origin of a very identifiable vintage.
The estate covers 14 hectares mostly planted with Pinot Noir, both in Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. A piece of vine recently acquired in Moulin A Vent completes the range of wines on offer.
True signature of the Estate, the label on the face illustrates the unique character of each appellation. So, the face on the label is different for each vintage. This series of sanguines, whose ocher tones recall the land of Burgundy, was realised by the artist Marie Paule Deville-Chabrolle.
