A top echelon producer and one of the most sought-after names in Burgundy. Etienne Grivot has made the wine for many years and the family have built up a simply superb collection of vineyard holdings in Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-St-Georges and in Chambolle-Musigny. Grivot is a master of tannin ripeness and he is not afraid to harvest a week or even ten days later than some of his neighbours to ensure full phenolic, maturity even in these recent warm growing seasons. The genius of his wines is that the extra ripening lends the wines the most glorious flavours, rich and powerful yet never overdone and the wines don’t seem to lack for freshness.
The succession to the next generation is now well underway, with Mathilde and Hubert increasingly influential, under their father’s experienced and wise guidance.
