    Goedhuis, December 2015

    Clos de Vougeot was once seen as a slightly cumbersome Grand Cru, and Etienne’s goal has been to make a “more courteous wine”. He has certainly succeeded in 2014. Whilst there is still the natural power of the appellation, there is a subtlety and refinement as well. A wine of real structure and great age-worthiness.

    The 2014 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a clean and precise bouquet with lifted blackcurrant and wild strawberry, infused with violet and iris scents, all wonderfully defined. The palate is quite structured on the entry with brittle tannin, edgy and tensile with a surprisingly dense and grippy, slightly meaty finish that lingers in the mouth. There is a touch of rusticity here -- a swarthy Clos Vougeot for the vintage. Drink 2018-2032

    Somewhat surprisingly this is notably more elegant than it usually is with its expressive nose of black and red pinot fruit, spice and abundant earth and tea scents. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the precise, muscular and powerful flavors that possess excellent size, weight and finishing punch on the youthfully austere, firm and huge finale that is borderline chewy. This may be moderately more elegant than usual but it remains a Clos de Vougeot all the same and one that it going to require fully 15 years to reach its apogee. If you have the patience, this is knock-out good for the appellation. Drink 2029+

    Somewhat surprisingly this is notably more elegant than it usually is with its expressive nose of black and red pinot fruit, spice and abundant earth scents. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the precise, muscular and powerful flavors that possess excellent size, weight and finishing punch on the youthfully austere and sleek finale. This may be moderately more elegant than usual but it remains a Clos de Vougeot all the same and one that it going to require fully 15 years to reach its apogee. Dont miss 93-95! Drink 2029+

    Deep and darker..a fulsome rich powerful aroma. Full on the palate too. juicy and generous and at this moment remarkably open. A broad, wine, soft, but not too heavy..and not too rich..it is underscored with a certain energy under the palate...

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.
