ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
In wine, it is said that pedigree is everything. In that case, we could not imagine a new producer to emerge in Burgundy with a pedigree stronger than that of Caroline Parent. She’s the daughter of two esteemed vignerons – her mom is Anne-Françoise Gros of the famous Vosne-Romanée estate, and her dad is Pommard star Francois Parent. Caroline is now the 15th generation of the family in the business.
The wines are made at the family’s facility in Beaune, which they renovated and moved into in 1998. Previously, the Gros and Parent production had been spread over three different cellars in Vosne-Romanée, Savigny-lès-Beaune, and Pommard – quite a logistical nightmare, as you could imagine. The new facility gives them ample room to do everything in one place, with a little room left over for Caroline’s project as well. The wines are made by Caroline, her father, and her brother Matthias, and her fruit sources are impeccable.
