Domaine Jean Grivot is among the greatest names in the world of Burgundy. Located in Vosne-Romanee, they have an ownership of 155.5 hectares spread across 22 appellations, including 3 Grand Crus: Clos de Vougeot, Echezeaux and Richebourg, 8 Premier Crus including the much lauded Beaumonts and Suchots and also some village and bourgogne.
The Domaine was passed down from Jean Grivot to his son Etienne in 1987, and in 2017, Etienne passed the torch to his talented, educated and passionate daughter, Mathilde, who has brought a fresh approach to this fine domaine while keeping the long time tradition of the Grivot family in which the quality of wine stems from meticulous vineyard work throughout the year to grow healthy, ripe fruits with good depth and flavour. Today, the vineyards are densely planted and farmed organically “sans certification,” while the aim in the cellar is for balance and clear expression of terroir. They believe in farming with minimal impact to the environment and eschews the use of chemicals in the vineyard. Their holdings in Richebourg, Echézeaux, Beaumonts, and Suchots are all ploughed using a horse as opposed to using machines to minimize the impact on the soil. The grapes are entirely destemmed and after fermentation, the wines are pumped over once a day before aging in barrel for 15 months; then depending on the vintage, the proportion of new oak is around 25% for the villages appellations, 30-40% for Premier crus and 40-45% percent for Grands Crus.

Good deep red. Reduced aromas of red berries and pepper. Very fresh and spicy, with hig-pitched, sharply delinated red berry flavors. As young as it is, it’s already quite expressive. Finishes with sweet tannins and lovely lingering fruit.
We also have some new additions including rare large formats so do please let me know if these are appeals –
