Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    One of Etienne’s favourite vineyards, this is a deeper, darker, more structured wine than the Brûlées. Striking loganberry fruits, there is a subtle sweetness. Initially shy, it evolves in the palate to express an extraordinary degree of complexity. Top class in every way.

    Score: 95-97

    The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts has a very pure, quite generous and maybe more expressive bouquet compared to the Aux Brûlées at the moment with copious black cherries, raspberry coulis and crushed flower aromas. The palate has superb energy and precision, extremely detailed with layers of mineral-soaked red and black fruit commingling on the sustained finish that fans out with style and panache. God...I love this. One of Etienne's best in 2016. Drink 2020-2045

    Burghound, January 2018,
    Score: 92-94

    A slightly higher-toned, pure and distinctly cool nose displays notes of red cherry, rose petal, lavender, hoisin and sandalwood. The more mineral-driven if less powerful medium weight flavors brim with minerality on the concentrated, intense and sleekly muscled finish that goes on and on. As is usually the case this is more refined than the Brûlées but a bit more harmonious overall. Lovely juice. Outstanding. Drink: 2028+

    Score: 92-94

    Dark red with ruby tones. Very ripe, deep, youthfully tight aromas of blackberry and licorice pastille. Velvety black fruits on entry, then chewy and backward in the middle palate, displaying pungent mineral and crushed rock notes and more obvious power than the Brûlées. As ripe as this wine is, it's more savory than sweet, and its tight kernel of fruit doesn't quite come alive today. Perhaps on the verge of surmaturité, but I'm encouraged by the wine's finishing violet lift.

    Dark crimson. Edgy and subtle. Real raciness and roundness. Really glorious! So pure and fresh. Savoury and electric. Great energy on the end. Drink 2024-2040

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

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.
