Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Les Rouges is perched above Echézeaux Grand Cru on poor pebbly soil. Vibrant purple colour, full of sweet fresh raspberry aromas. This is a wine of great clarity, the fruit glides over the tongue, with its soft satiny tannins. Amazingly graceful in every way.

    Score: 91-93

    The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Rouges 1er Cru has a slightly rustic bouquet compared to Grivot’s other crus this year, but one that is still charming, offering red currants and cranberry and a touch of tomato leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and fine density and freshness Touches of white pepper and clove appear toward the cohesive, slightly meaty finish. Very charming. 2022 - 2038

    Score: 90-93

    A more subtly spiced and restrained nose grudgingly speaks of red currant, cherry and a hint of pomegranate where violet whiffs lurk in the background. As is typically the case, there is a bit more volume and richness to the much stonier medium weight plus flavors that possess solid power before culminating in a youthfully austere and somewhat firmer finish. Patience advised for this beauty as it's definitely built-to-age. Drink 2030+. Outstanding

    Score: 92-95

    Gorgeous mid purple with a lively racy red fruit, which feels like it has just come off some reduction. Very linear, very classy, redcurrant and raspberry, no sucrosity, excellent length. Ticks all the boxes.

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.
