Viticulture And Viniculture At Domaine Anne Gros

The grapes are always hand-harvested, and the juice is vinified on indigenous yeasts in epoxy-lined cement tanks for red wine and stainless steel for whites. 

Barrel-aging typically lasts about 16 months with a significant percentage in new barrels - 80% for a Grand Cru wine, 50% for a Village wine, and 30% for regional wines.

Now, here’s a look at Anne Gros’ deep history with Vosne Romanee.

A Brief History Of Domaine Anne Gros


The Gros family has been part of Vosne Romanee’s landscape for a very long time, harking back to 1830:

1830: Alphonse Gros marries Madame Latour and settles in Vosne Romanée.

1860: Alphonse Gros purchases Clos des Réas (a well-known Premier Cru vineyard) in Vosne Romanée. Subsequent decades saw Gros family members extending the family Domaine to parcels in Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, and Echézeaux. 

1930: Louis Gros (Alphonse Gros’ descendent) inherits the family Domaine, renaming it to Domaine Louis Gros.

1963: Domaine Louis Gros is split up among Louis Gros’ four children:

  • François Gros establishes Domaine François Gros 
  • Jean Gros establishes Domaine Jean Gros
  • Gustave and Colette Gros establishes Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur

1988: Anne Gros succeeds her father at Domaine François Gros. The estate is named Domaine Anne et François Gros, and only becomes Domaine Anne Gros in 1995.

To-date, other estates belonging to Gros family members are Domaine Michel Gros, Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur and Domaine Anne Françoise Gros.
