  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    The term Brûlées implies burnt and heat, but it is not a reflection of a torrid location, rather that it was once the location of a fire clearing. So instead of any baked fruit flavours the Brûlées’ elevation on the slopes of Vosne creates a wine of charm and beautiful red fruit intensity. Sweet, fresh, long, pure, and beautifully balanced. A Burgundy lover’s dream.

  • Neal Martin, December 2017, Score: 91-93

    The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées has a supremely gifted bouquet, beautifully defined with red and black berry fruit, chalk, bay leaf and hints of cold black tea. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly chalky tannin. This is crisp, tightly wound, very focused and quite penetrating toward the finish, though it does not offer the depth or volume of the 2015 last year. Still, this is a very fine Aux Brûlées that will age with style. Drink 2021-2038

  • Burghound, January 2018, Score: 91-94

    A cool, super-fresh and restrained nose offers up airy aromas of essence of black pinot fruit, violet, anise and a discreet hint of wood spice. The dense, powerful and muscular big-bodied flavors possess plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract, which is important because the tannic spine is unmistakably present on the robust and mineral-driven finish. While it would not be entirely fair to describe this as rustic, it flirts with it, yet a fine Brûlées almost always becomes seductive in time. Recommended if you have the patience to cellar it for the longer-term. Outstanding. Drink: 2031+

  • Stephen Tanzer, January 2018, Score: 92-95

    Bright red-ruby. Pure but reticent scents of dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and spices are accented by a touch of gunflint minerality. Sappy and fine-grained, offering terrific intensity and depth to its precise flavors of dark berries and spices. Grivot has long thought that his Aux Brûlées vines on a south-facing terrace are too sun-drenched in warmer years, but he noted that this is the first vintage he has really liked for its energy and sophistication, describing the wine as "less Brigitte Bardot than normal." He credits this to more intracellular fermentation with a higher percentage of whole berries.

  • Jancis Robinson, November 2017, Score: 17.5+

    Bright red. ‘Our goal is freshness and energy’ but this is voluptuous too. Firm and textured on the end. Lots to chew on. Drink 2024-2038

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.Read less

Region

Vosne Romanée

The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
