    On the Vosne Romanée side of Nuits St Georges, just below 1er Cru Murgers. This vineyard has noticeably stony soils which results in a bright, fresh, crystalline style of wine, Masses of red cherries, and a sense of grippy minerality this is finely balanced with great purity. Lovely.

    The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Lavières has a clean and pure, more generous and fruit-driven bouquet than the Charmois, with blackcurrant, raspberry and hints of crushed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity and an attractive oyster shell note that tinctures that black fruit on the finish. Very fine. Drink 2019-2027

    Moderate wood influence still allows the spicy red and dark currant aromas trimmed in warm earth to shine. There is both good volume and concentration to the lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that display a sleek muscularity on the more slightly complex and persistent finale. This is quite firm and serious but even so I would describe it as more Vosne than Nuits in 2016. A quality villages. Outstanding. Drink: 2024+

    Dark red with ruby highlights. Subtle scents of black cherry and dark raspberry complicated by menthol and violet. Juicy, spicy and energetic but a bit youthfully imploded, displaying an almost metallic minerality; aeration brought suppler notes of redcurrant and earth and a sexy spicy sweetness.

    Close to Vosne. Precious and well integrated. Bright fruit and racy and red cherry fruit, Good pace, quite a bit of tannin. Drink 2020-2032

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.
