Winegrowers from father to son for 10 generations, our family estate is located in the commune of Premeaux-Prissey. It covers 11.50 hectares divided between the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits. Since 2018, Christian GROS's two sons, Julien and Nicolas, have taken over the management of the estate.
It is in Burgundy that the GROS family has been producing wine for 10 generations with the same passion. The Gros Ch. & Fils estate was born from the union of André GROS and Renée FAIVELEY. The GROS family is from Ladoix-Serrigny in the Côte de Beaune and winegrowers in Buisson (hamlet of the village) since the 1700s. The FAIVELEY family is from Premeaux-Prissey in the Côte de Nuits and winegrowers since the early 1700s as well. Their estates prospered despite the vagaries of the phylloxera...
Since 2018 it is the 2 sons of Christian GROS, Julien and Nicolas who continue to manage the estate. Julien takes care of the winemaking (after having been manager of the Paul MISSET estate in Nuits-Saint-Georges then winemaker at the Château de Beaucastel in Chateauneuf-du-Pape) as long as Nicolas takes care of the work of the vine and the administrative management of the domain.
Covering an area of 11.50 hectares, it is made up of plots ranging from Nuits-Saint-Georges to Aloxe-Corton. The estate's cellar is located in the town of Prémeaux-Prissey.
We are committed to the protection of our land, involved in a sustainable development process. We limit our impact on the environment: sustainable cultivation (plowing, disbudding and manual harvesting), no use of weedkillers, our phytosanitary products are partly in organic control.
We sort our grapes in order to select the best bunches to make our wines. They are aged for a period of 12 to 14 months in barrels of 228 liters for the reds and 500 liters for the whites. The barrels are made from fine-grained 2-year-old wood and made by an association of local coopers.
