Domaine Jean Grivot is among the great names in Burgundian wine. Etienne Grivot and his wife Marielle took over from Etienne's father Jean Grivot in 1987. The vineyards are densely planted and farmed organically "sans certification" while the aim in the cellar is for balance and clear expression of terroir.
Jean Grivot's 38.3 acres spread across 22 appellations with vineyards in the communes of Vosne-Romanee, Vougeot, Chambolle-Musigny, and Nuits-Saint-Georges. Besides the three grand crus, there are 8 premier crus including the much-lauded Les Beaux Monts and Suchots in Vosne-Romanee. The grapes are completely de-stemmed and fermentation is spontaneous.
About the Vineyard
Vosne-Romanee is from village-level parcels lying between the Vosne and the D974. Domaine Jean Grivot is one of the finest producers here and this wine is intended to be a classic expression of the village with red and black fruit perfumed with spice and violet nuances.
The grapes are destemmed and maceration a froid usually lasts just a day or two. The alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous and malolactic fermentation occurs in barrel. Depending on the vintage, the proportion of new oak is around 25% for the village appellations.
The wine shows aromas and flavors of red berries, herbs, and purple flowers. The palate is rich with ripe fruit and medium weight with bright acidity and fine tannins. Aging in up to 25% new Burgundian piece brings notes of vanilla, toast, and baking spices.
Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine's high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
92 points - Decanter
"This blend of grapes from a series of village-level parcels is by far the largest production at Grivot and it is just what you would want from a Vosne-Romanee. Lieux-dits include Aux Champs Perdrix at the top of the slope, Aux Reas, as well as others further down from the premiers crus. The blend delivers very expressive red berry fruit, firmly grippy tannins and a velvety texture on the palate that is a delight. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039."
89-91 points - Vinous
"The 2019 Vosne-Romanee Village was quite closed at first when I tasted it from barrel, opening gradually to show crushed strawberry and morello cherries and touches of pressed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with plump tannins on the entry, mulberry and wild strawberry fruit flavors, and a touch of black olive toward the saline finish. Compact at the moment, it will require 3-4 years in bottle. Very fine.- By Neal Martin"
88-91 points - Allen Meadows - Burghound
"Reduction presently masks the underlying fruit though there is very good freshness to the delicious and richer medium weight flavors that possess a velvety texture on the saline-inflected finish that delivers fine length. This will need to add depth to merit the upper end of my projected range."
