En Primeur | Domaine Grivot

Jean Grivot’s name remains on the label although it is his son Étienne and grandchildren, Mathilde and Hubert, who are the current family members behind this great estate. It is one of the most respected names in the Côte d’Or. The domaine’s vineyards include some of the greatest in the Côte de Nuits, thanks in part to Jean’s parents; his mother’s dowry included Pruliers and Ronciéres, and together they purchased land in Clos de Vougeot. Jean himself married a member of the Jayer family, who inherited land in Chambolle, Vosne Romanée and Echézeaux. In the 1980s the family also purchased their prized parcel of Richebourg. In short, this is an estate with impressive traditions, but that has also evolved with each generation.

Étienne Grivot is one the Côte d’Or’s most thoughtful winemakers, and he is passing the same methods on to the next generation. The family philosophy is to de-stalk 100% and they pay particular attention to the tannic profile of the grapes and their wines. With this in mind, Étienne used the 2003 vintage as a reference point and was in no hurry to start the harvest in 2020. He waited until 3rd September, once he was completely confident that the berries had achieved full phenolic ripeness. Consequently, his alcohol levels are a little higher than earlier-picking domaines, but the wines generous “matière” balances the alcohol and they have a great future ahead.
