The Producer

About Domaine Gross

The entire vineyard is managed according to the principles of biodynamics and our primary objective is to produce wines with great aromatic expression. Harvesting is done exclusively by hand throughout the estate and selective sorting is carried out in the vineyard. The whole grape is transported to the cellar. For direct pressing wines , the harvest is loaded by gravity in order to preserve the integrity of the bunches. Slow pressing (between 6 and 18 hours depending on the cuvée) gently extracts the juice from each of the berries; the aromas of the grapes are thus preserved and will be expressed through great finesse. For maceration wines , the whole and de-stemmed bunches are in contact with the juice; fermentation takes place for 3 weeks. This ancestral method allows us to produce wines without any input or sulphite; the aging is more or less long, between 6 and 12 months depending on the cuvées, in our oak tuns as well as in stainless steel barrels. At the end of August, the wines are bottled by us, then housed in our cellars for a few months at least, or even several years for wines with long aging potential.
