  • Goedhuis, January 2014

    Almost Vosne Romanée in style as its vines adjoin this famous appellation and in particular Vosne’s great 1er Cru Malconsorts. A hugely layered wine with stunning black forest fruit flavours. Quite a big flamboyant style with great weight on the finish.

  • Neal Martin, December 2013, Score: 92-94

    The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots was reductive when I tasted it from barrel. Still, the palate is very fresh and mineral-driven with great tension and a sense of weightlessness on the graphite finish that will ensure this will be a riveting premier cru once in bottle. You can feel that stoniness tingling on the finish long after the wine has departed!

  • Burghound, January 2015, Score: 93

    (from 70+ year old vines). As it was from barrel this is still noticeably reduced so if you’re tempted to try a bottle in the name of science be sure to decant it first. This is a big and very rich wine with good muscle and punch to the well-detailed flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension on the austere, balanced and strikingly long finish. This is a robust effort that in 2012 is more Nuits than Vosne in character. Note that my score assumes that the reduction is a passing phase. Drink 2027+

  • Burghound, January 2014, Score: 91-93

    This is sufficiently reduced that the fruit is flattened though the spice character of a fine Boudots is perceptible. This is noticeably bigger and richer than either the Roncières or the Pruliers with good muscle and punch to the well-detailed flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension that extends to the austere, balanced and strikingly long finish where a touch of wood surfaces. Excellent potential. Drink 2024+

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2014, Score: 17.5

    Much more aromatic quality than their village level Nuits-St-Georges and Vosne-Romanée. Succulent, opulent, juicy, expressive. Fine red cherry and redcurrant fruit. Grand. Drink 2015-2023

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

Nuits Saint Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
