Localisation : Côtes de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: Pale lemon color, with a pure fresh and attractive floral nose, slight licorice behind, crip, toasty. Medium length.
Note: The Cuvée Marine first harvest was in 1999. The mineral structure is moderated by ageing the wine on the lees.
Barrel ageing lasts approximately 12 months in 500 litres barrels (25% new oak).
Food Pairing: We recommend you drink this wine young, while still fruity. It makes an excellent aperitif as it awakens the taste buds. A hint of iodine and a slight saline quality complete this wine, which would complement raw or grilled fish, shellfish in a court-bouillon, white meat, charcuterie without garlic and goat cheese.
The Domain: While each cru faithfully reflects its terroir, it is terroir as translated through Gros’ expert touch, offering richer aromatics, rounder curves, silkier tannins. The combination is irresistible, so much so that Gros’ very limited production is snapped up by global collectors faster and faster each vintage.
Anne Gros simply is one of the top winemakers in Burgundy today, which explains why her wines have inspired such a cult-like following. Gros is an artisan with a clear vision of her terroir and talents, and the grace to be humble despite the weight of Burgundian tradition and family history.
Anne Gros took over her father’s winery (Domaine François Gros) in the late 1980s. Yet there have been Gros family members in Vosne since the 1830s; land holdings have split among family members for generations. Today, there are four separate wineries in Vosne owned by the extended Gros family, including Domaine Anne Gros: Gros Frere et Soeur, Anne-Francoise Gros and Michel Gros, all of whom are Anne’s cousins.
