The Grand Cru of Richebourg sits next to the famed Grand Crus of La Romanee and Romanee-Conti. Wines from this appellation have the tendency to be big and rich, compared to the more restrained wines of its neighbors. This wine is savoury and thick with fruit flavour. It should perhaps be left to rest for five more years or so before a highly anticipated uncorking!
Domaine AF Gros was founded in 1988, soon augmented by the purchase of vineyards in Flagey Echezeaux, and later with her husband Francois Parent in the commune of Savigny. The addition of Francois' family estates in Pommard has created a diverse and substantial Domaine whose cellars are now located in Beaune. The jewell in the crown is a small parcel of Richebourg one of Burgundies most iconic vineyards. The pedigree here speaks volumes, so much family tradition and knowledge to draw on. The result is a range of wines with an understated confidence and finesse.
