Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    Aux Lavières lies on the Vosne Romanée side of Nuits St Georges, just below 1er Cru Murgers. In style it references both villages, combining Vosne charm with some Nuits muscle. Superb from cask, this cuvée just jumps out of the glass. A fruit compote of dark flavours, the sweet ripe fruit blends perfectly with a lively mineral freshness. A beautifully confident wine that offers so much more than its village classification suggests.

    Score: 88-90

    The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Lavières showed just a little reduction on the nose, scents of baked cherries and light earthy aromas emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, quite strict and slightly chalky in texture with a touch of brittleness on the finish. Fine. Drink 2025 - 2035

    There is just enough reduction present to partially blur the nuance on the ripe red and dark berry fruit aromas. There is equally good freshness to the even sleeker and brighter middle weight flavors that possess a velvet-textured mid-palate while exhibiting a saliva-inducing, persistent and well-balanced finale. This excellent effort just makes on feel like drinking it. In sum, this is a very good Nuits villages. Drink 2027+

    Score: 17.5

    Clean, ripe, smooth and with a nice mid-palate, this is a fairly quiet wine and not one with much of a voice right now. Everything seems to be in the right place, so I cannot complain. I just wish there was a little more to grab onto.

    Heady bright dark purple, the nose is much more lively than the Vosne, with darker fruit but nothing cooked. Damsons. Big firm tannins again, built up by the acidity, but such a wealth of attractive deep red fruit alongside. Fine finish.

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

Nuits-Saint-Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
