    Goedhuis, December 2015

    A southerly lying vineyard within the appellation which tends to have a more masculine edge to it. This is a high class wine with real power. It balances a striking harmonious mouthfeel with grip and texture. Masses of potential.

    The 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Roncières has a svelte, candied bouquet with ripe black cherries mixed with orange blossom and minerals, floral scents emerging with aeration. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with more black fruit than red. There are fine tannins here, very pure and caressing in the mouth, maintaining fine precision on the slightly chalky textured finish. One of Etienne's more reserved 2014s, but still enticing. Drink 2018-2032

    A well-layered and appealingly fresh combination features various red berries, floral, earth, herbal tea and sauvage hints. There is fine richness to the lively, intense and mineral-driven medium weight flavors that exhibit a distinct salinity on the beautifully complex, well-balanced and firm finale. Good stuff. OUtstanding. Drink 2024+

    Very lifted and spicy - herbs..flowers…something intriguing. Yes I like this; it has a floral violet lift and a bite; much more vibrant and lifted and spicy…there is more freshness here too. Aromatic at the end of lift the palate. Energy here too. Of the 3 NSG this is the one for me. It grabs your attention.

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.
