Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    The Grivot parcel of Clos Vougeot is in the lower section of this large grand cru. The combination of its excellent water retention and the Grivot’s skilled vineyard management puts this in the running to be one of the Clos Vougeots of the vintage. Dark berries, damsons and sloes abound. This is a very relaxed style, imposing and yet not forceful, with a long lingering aftertaste.

    Score: 93-95

    The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru showed just a little reduction on the nose, but that blows away with modest swirling to reveal blackberries, raspberry coulis, touches of melted tar and rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip. It displays a fine crescendo in the mouth, until it reaches the effervescent finish. A tang of blood orange and brown spice lingers on the aftertaste. 2023 - 2050

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2020,
    Score: 92-95

    A spectacularly complex and beautifully layered nose offers up an array of plum, spice, game, earth and soft oak nuances. The supple yet punchy and powerful broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent density while delivering first-rate persistence on the remarkably persistent finish that really firms up as it sits on the palate. Impressive and less austere at this early stage than usual. Drink 2033+. Don't miss!

    Score: 93-96

    Ripe red purple colour, the nose hardly speaking yet. This is a big boy but in balance, with a sweet dark fruit, not quite sure if it goes all the way through. Quiet today but with lots of potential.

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.
