Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    Les Rouges is one of the village’s highest premiers crus with relatively poor pebbly soil. Aptly named Les Rouges as the wine always has a glorious colour and bright red cherry fruit profile. A direct style, with good freshness. It will benefit from a few years in bottle, and will make great aged Pinot.

    Score: 92-94

    The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Rouges has a more masculine, perhaps more bucolic bouquet compared to Les Chaumes at present: dusky black fruit, autumn leaves, white flowers and just a light pinch of brown spice. The palate is very focused with plenty of energy, certainly leaning toward tart red fruit with fine mineralité and salinité toward the penetrating finish. This is all about the precision rather than power. Bon vin! Drink 2020-2038

    Score: 90-92

    Bright, dark red. Pungent aromas of minerals, spices, white pepper and herbs suggest some whole-cluster vinification but this wine was destemmed. Enters the mouth juicy and spicy, then shows lovely finesse of texture in the middle, with strong calcaire-influenced flavors of minerals, gunflint and white pepper plus an intriguing suggestion of garrigue. This very brisk, precise, high-altitude wine finishes dry and minerally, with vibrating, rising length. More impressive on the back half than on the nose or attack.

    Abuts Échezeaux. Mid ruby. Nose a bit muted. Salty palate. Dry end. Very embryonic. Very graphite. ‘VG with fish.’ Drink 2022-2035

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.
