The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from contracted vines that yields just one or two barrels that Caroline Parent hopes to increase in the future when the Gros family exchange parcels with Bernard Gros’ current holding. It has a very perfumed, very floral bouquet that is actually reminiscent of Bonnes-Mares. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry, black currant pastilles and cassis. It is well-defined and full of joie-de-vivre. ||Caroline Parent mentioned that when she tours the United States, she carries a family tree so that customers do not get too entangled in the interconnected strands of the Gros and Parent branches. This is basically a negociant set-up based in Anne-Francoise’s winery in Beaune. In the past, you would have found bottled labelled “Domaine A.F. Gros et Francois Parent”, but now they are separate labels, the former reserved for domaine wines (see separate entry). eRobertParker.com.December, 2013
