DOMAINE A.F GROS: Known as one of the greatest Pinot Noir makers, the domain itself triumphs a title of having a perfect expression of Pinot Noir, with the unique combination of elegant sensuality and depth. The careful selection of the neutral oak barrels and springtime bottling only belies their passion and fervency for winemaking, along with the prestige that their wines are known to have. Every Pinot Noir that passes from their hands carries a distinct, beautiful aroma of succulent, ripe black fruits, and the earthy scent of carefully chosen oak. Clearly--the passion and love from the generations of Burgundians that they`ve descended from having yet to die out. Passed with loving care from hand to hand within the family, Anne Francoise`s children, Mathias and Caroline Parent carries on their legacy of uniqueness and charm, making their mother`s original vision a cemented reality

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
