Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2009

    Etienne Echézeaux is often one of our favourites during the week The 2008 is ample with a bigmouthfeel and dense chewy fruit. The tannins are nonetheless superfine and sweet. Lifted and layered.

    Burghound, January 2010,
    Score: 92-94

    A more complex and more refined nose features spicy, fresh and elegant red and blue pinot fruit aromas that possess a distinct floral component and the greater refinement also can be found on the rich and full-bodied flavors that evidence a sleek muscularity that culminates in a powerful, intense and dramatically long finish that somewhat surprisingly, is even more austere. Drink: 2023+.Notes: from the climat of Les Cruots, also known as Vignes Blanches.

    Score: 94

    A more complex and more refined nose that is perhaps not quite as ripe features spicy, fresh and elegant red and blue pinot fruit aromas that possess a distinct floral component and the greater refinement also can be found on the rich and full-bodied flavors that evidence a sleek muscularity that culminates in a powerful, intense and dramatically long finish that somewhat surprisingly, is even more austere. This should be marvelous if given enough cellar time. Drink: 2023+.Notes: from the climat of Les Cruots, also known as Vignes Blanches.

  • AR

    Anthony Rose, January 2010,
    Score: 93+

    Deep coloured, intense aromatic quality, dark loganberry and black cherry-like fruitiness, concentrated, rich, sinewy and serious, with a minerality that makes it lively and fresh and supple tannins behind the seriousness of purpose; a well-structured and intense pinot with fine acidity and balance that should go on for a long time yet.

Producer

Domaine Etienne Grivot (formerly Jean Grivot)

One of the most famous names in Vosne Romanée, Domaine Grivot dates back to the nineteenth century. Over the years and marriages, the domaine grew to include vineyards in notable appellations such as Clos de Vougeot, Echézeaux and Richebourg. Etienne, the fifth generation of the family to run the estate, returned to Burgundy from work experience in California in the 1980s. He eventually took over from his father completely in 1990. Over time and through experience, Etienne has created his own style of wine, which many tasters consider to be growing in elegance. The wines remain powerful and rich, true vins de garde, which usually need several years of cellaring to soften and develop. Those patient enough to wait know that the wines of Etienne Grivot are exceptional. In 2012 his children Mathilde and Hubert joined him at the family domaine, and the three share a united vision. It is a harmonious and collaborative family team. They eschew the trend for analysing every drop of juice, and pay much more attention to the vegetative cycle of their vines. The year’s weather conditions will dictate how the team handles the grapes in the cellar far more than the complex chemical analyses which comes back from the lab.

Region

Echézeaux

One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
