Mathias Parent who is the son of Anne-Françoise Gros and François Parent, now makes the wine (since 2013 vintage) for all of the Gros and Parent operations. He describes 2015 as "a beautiful vintage in both the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, which hasn't really been the case over the past few years due to the hail problems. In charge of sales is his sister Caroline who took us through the wines (pictured above in the cellar), but Allen Meadows had this to say about Mathias - "young Parent is clearly coming into his own as a winemaker; this bodes well for the future and it's clear that he's got real talent."
Domaine A-F Gros Savigny-les-Beaune Clos des Guettes 1er Cru 2015
90-92 Burghound: “Discreet but not invisible wood sets off the equally pure and very pretty nose that consists of liqueur-like red berry fruit, pungent earth and a sauvage wisp. The sleek, delineated and punchy medium-bodied flavours reveal ample minerality on the focused if youthfully austere finish that is shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins.”
