Tasting Notes

  • BURG1

    Burghound, January 2010,
    Score: 93-95

    The '08 Richebourg is blessed with the most complex and most complete nose that features a wonderfully fresh and spicy aromatic profile that includes red and blue pinot fruit, plum, kirsch and an herbal hint that introduces intense, pure and mineral-driven large-bodied flavors that possess a beautiful sense of relief and tension on the hugely long finish. This should be great in time but it will require plenty of it. Drink: 2026+.Notes: from Richebourg proper.

    Score: 95

    ntense depth of bright dark ruby, lovely fine spicy dark berry frits quality; very spicy on the palate, rich and concentrated pinot in dark berry fruit mode, very supple tannins and a fine blade of fresh acidity cutting through the richness, lovely fruit, balance and terroir minerality. Sex in a bottle.

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.
