Alain Gras

Alain Gras is the best grower in the beautiful, hilltop village of Saint-Romain le Haut and for many years has been the greatest ambassador of its wines.

Alain Gras wines are listed in most of France’s Michelin three-star restaurants which is down to his own sheer determination, and his friendship with the late master chef, Bernard Loiseau, of Saulieu. The domaine stands at 15 ha, the vast majority of which is at 1,300 feet above sea level in Saint-Romain. He also has vines at 1,050 feet in Auxey-Duresses and in Les Tillets, one of Meursault’s highest lieux-dits. Hot vintages favour these cooler sites and Alain admits that global warming is actually helping him! Alain is also very keen on la chasse to the point that making an appointment with him before nightfall in the shooting season is difficult; after all, the woodcock may be in. Visiting in daylight is therefore a rare treat for us with its chance of seeing Mont Blanc from his front door. One tastes with character-filled photographs of his grandfather, who lived to the age of 92, and his centenarian great-grandfather looking on. All that fresh air and Saint-Romain wine must have stood them well. Alain took over the running of the domaine in 1979 and has recently been joined by his son Arthur.

About En Primeur

Lying Abroad/En Primeur/In Bond Wines

Wines offered ‘Lying Abroad’ or ‘En Primeur’ provide a good way to secure some of the most sought after wines at opening prices. In addition we ensure it is the cheapest way to buy favourite mid-priced wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône, so please ask us for our offers or check our website for latest reports. Prices are clearly marked in our sales literature and are exclusive of duty, shipping, marine insurance and VAT. Shipment of claret and Port normally takes place around 30 months after the vintage, burgundy and Rhône usually more quickly. A second invoice for the duty, shipping, marine insurance and VAT on the value of the wine is charged at the time of shipment - view current duty rates. There are no further charges for deliveries to a UK mainland home or work address. Your Lying Abroad purchases are covered under The Bunch Code of Practice which can be sent on request or viewed here.
