A journey through the GRAND Cru vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin
Our Premier Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin Dinner in February sold out in record time - just over 24 hours! We are pleased to announce the second dinnner in this series - The GRAND CRUS of Gevrey-Chambertin. 

Gevrey-Chambertin boasts nine Grand Crus, all of which are red only. The vineyards are almost evenly spread on either side of the Route des Grand Crus at between 260 and 300 metres above sea level.

As is the case right through Burgundy each vineyard has its own style and character and this dinner aims to unravel the differences and similarities between the nine Grand Crus.

Once again we have assembled a selection of wines all with some bottle age and from nine different and respected producers. And the vintages selected are certainly serious.

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 Grand Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin develop over the time. It is a terrific opportunity to learn more about this commune of Burgundy.

This dinner will in the lovely Riedel Room at Woodland House.

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.

Date: Monday 15 February 2016
