Domaine Jean Grivot Bourgogne Rouge 2017 - 6 pack IN BOND

Access to one of Burgundy's seriously star growers for a relatively modest price. One producers village wine is another's Bourgogne rouge. Most Bourgogne reds are humble wines, but such is the strength of his vineyard holdings that Etienne Grivot makes this with a declassified parcel of 50-year-old vines in Vosne-Romanee! The 2017s are delicious wines with a succulent juiciness of fruit that is hard to resist. These will be great wines for drinking in the next few years or so while other recent vintages evolve more slowly in the cellar. 

Will arrive in the UK in Autumn 2019.

  • Size: 750ml
  • Vintage: 2017

About Domaine Jean Grivot

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. Etienne described 2016 as ‘a crazy vintage’, mainly due to the significant frost damage in the spring which caused them to lose all their crop of Chambolle, as well as significant volumes of Clos Vougeot, Suchots, Echezeaux, Pruliers and Ronciere, amongst others. In qualitative terms, however, he is very happy, describing it as a vintage of great transparency, with wines which are likely to show well throughout their lives, as opposed to the 2015s which are already closing down. It is a very successful year for Grivot, with wines of great red fruit purity, with classic Pinot Noir character and a vibrant freshness. Each terroir shows clearly in the wine, with very little vintage effect to dilute the origin of the wine. This is certainly a vintage that will please true Burgundy lovers. We have very limited stocks of these wines.
