Gevrey 1er Crus Dinner Header
A journey through the Premier Cru vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin
We are pleased to announce the first in a new series of dinners for 2016. These dinners will focus on the communes of Burgundy looking at the different vineyards and makers.

Our first dinner starts at the northern end - Gevrey-Chambertin and we will investigate the top Premier Cru vineyards. There will be ten Premier Crus served from ten different producers. To make the dinner even more interesting we have sourced a selection of aged wines from some of the greatest vintages of the 2000's.

The dinner presents a great opportunity to taste some very highly regarded wines and compare them to their peers. We will provide tasting and vineyard information to help explain just why these wines, frequently located next door to each other, can taste so different.

With the range of vintages being served the dinner will also show how the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin develop over the time. It is a terrific opportunity to learn more about this commune of Burgundy.

Gros Richebourg Dinner
The Gros Family Richebourg 1949-2012 Dinner at Circa
As Jasper Morris says "Richebourg is usually considered the grandest of the grand crus in the Village (Vosne-Romanee), apart from the monopoles of Romanee-Conti, La Romanee and La Tache."
 
The 8.03 hectares that make up this vineyard are divided amongst eleven owners. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti with 3.51 hectares are by far the largest. Next comes Leroy with 0.78 hectares.
 
But perhaps the most interesting holdings belong to the Gros family. In 1882 Louis-Gustave Gros acquired 2 ha of Richebourg - with the main part located in the Les Verroilles ou Richebourg section. In 1932 Louis Gros, the grandson became the owner. When Louis Gros passed away in 1951 his four children formed a joint ownership that was maintained until 1963 when the family holdings were split between the heirs. 
 
Gustave Gros (1925-1984) and Colette Gros (1935-) joined forces in a new domaine - Gros Frere et Soeur, whereas Jean Gros (1927-) and Francois Gros (1931-2004) created the domaine Gros Pére et Fils. In 1973 Gros Pére et Fils was split and two new domaines were created - Domaine Jean Gros and Domaine Francois Gros. 
 
Today, the Richebourg holdings are divided amongst three Gros families. The siblings Anne-Francoise (Domaine A-F Gros) and Bernhard (Domaine Gros F and S) and their cousin Anne (Domaine Anne Gros). Michel Gros, the brother of Anne-Francoise and Bernhard, opted to retain full control of Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Clos des Reas.

This dinner will trace the history of the Gros holdings in Richebourg. I am very fortunate to be able to include a Rare bottle of 1949 Richebourg from the grandfather Louis as well as the 1989 Richebourg from Francois Gros. To complete the lineup we have 3 different vintages of Richebourg from each of the current Gros domaines.
