Domaine Jean Grivot
One of the superstar producers on the Cotes de Nuit, the Grivots have been making wine in Burgundy for nearly a century and built their reputation on their strong holdings of grand cru vineyards in Vosne-Romanee and Nuits-St-Georges. They went through a period of hedonistic levels of new oak in the 80s and early 90s, but since then under 3rd generation custodian, Etienne Grivot, the wines have become more focused and pure. Now they are amongst the most admired and collectible in Burgundy. These wines land in the UK in November 2018.
Bourgogne Rouge 2016 - £150/6 IB
One producer's village wine is just another's basic Bourgogne rouge. Most Bourgogne reds are humble wines, but such is the strength of his vineyard holdings, Grivot makes this with a declassified parcel of 50-year-old vines in Vosne-Romanee! Delicious drinking from the end of 2018 onwards but don’t be at all surprised to see this age well over five years or more.
Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Lavieres 2016 - £282/6 IB
A very well regarded, village level lieu-dit, that sits just below the premier cru Aux Murgers and adjacent to Vosne-Romanee. Defined by femininity and perfume and thus closer to Vosne in style than Nuits. Luminous fruit and then a very long graphite texture to finish. Fantastic length. Could be enjoyed now but wait until 2018 to drink.
Nuits-St-Georges Les Pruliers Premier Cru 2016 - £540/6 IB
A large premier cru in the heart of Nuits-St-Georges, the name referring to the plums that were farmed here once. The soil is rich, the site quite exposed and eroded, the wines are always complex, powerful and in need of ageing. The 2015 gushes with blue fruits, swathed in creamy tannins. There are rocky hints and notes of spice, the structure is precise and fantastic, and simultaneously dense and rich. Bloody fantastic.
Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Boudots Premier Cru - £696/6 IB
A stellar premier cru that borders Vosne-Romanee to the north and continues into Aux Malconsorts, itself indisputably one of Burgundy’s finest premier crus. Amazing intensity, this is gamey, complex, and just phenomenal. A seamless combination of perfume and power, this is sumptuous and heavenly and fans out into a velvety finish.
Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts Premier Cru - £900/6 IB
Beautifully nestled against the grand cru of Echezeaux, and Les Suchots, Grivot has two plots here– an elevated parcel that maintains freshness, and a section in the Les Beaux Monts Bas, giving the wine sensuality. The intensity and perfume on these wines is incredible. If possible this is somehow more plush than Aux Boudots, a flowing mass of blue and back fruits. It’s magically ripe, rich and very long.
