Domaine Jean Grivot’s history tracks back to the French Revolution, when the Grivot family started their move from the Jura to Vosne-Romanée, although their origins goes back to Italy’s Val d’Aosta.
Jean Grivot took over after his dad’s death in 1955, and since 1959 all the domaine’s wines were estate bottled. Ever since, the domaine gained exceptional reputation for both the quality of the wines and the transparency of the respective terroirs.
In 1982 Jean’s son Etienne joined him, after completing his formal Aenologie studies in Beaune and stage both in France and California. Gradually, responsibilities were transferred to Etienne, and since 1987 he was in charge of both the vineyards and cellars.
*2016 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru
$275.00btl/$1650.00 per case of six
(Burg Hound 95)
A distinctly earthy and very ripe nose flashes notes of plum, dark currant, violet, mocha and discreet but not invisible wood. The rich, full-bodied and powerful big-bodied flavors terminate in mouth coating, youthfully austere and impressively long finish. This terrific if very backward effort is a classic Clos de Vougeot of power and restraint that will require ample cellar time.
*2016 Vosne Romane Les Beaux Monts 1er Cru
$229.99btl/2759.88 per case
(Burg Hound 92-94) “OUTSTANDING”
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.
*2016 Vosne Romanee Village
$79.99btl/$959.88 per case
(Burg Hound 88-91)
A more elegant and really quite pretty nose offers up a ripe and fresh blend of plum, dark cherry and spice, all of which is trimmed in subtle wood. The generous, fleshy and very round medium-bodied flavors possess a highly seductive mid-palate mouthfeel while exhibiting good length on the delicious finale that also flashes a touch of youthful austere.
*2016 Nuits St Georges Boudot 1er Cru
$199.99btl/$2399.88 per case
(Burg Hound 91-94) “OUTSTANDING”
Here the wood treatment isn’t subtle though neither is it sufficient to overshadow the wonderfully fresh and layered nose of blue pinot fruit, cassis, earth and broad range of spice elements. The mouthfeel of the broad-shouldered flavors is equally seductive and even sleeker but despite the generous mid-palate there is solid muscle and a firm core of tannins supporting the powerful and driving finish. As big as this is, it still manages to remain refined and well-balanced. Lovely stuff but once again, extended patience will be required if you wish to experience this at its peak.
