About this winery

Domaine Jean Grivot is one of Burgundy's greatest small family estates, and their story is a classic Burgundy family story. They were one of the first families in Vosne Romanee to bottle and sell their own wine, beginning in the 1930's. The estate has been run by fifth-generation vigneron Etienne Grivot since 1987 with his wife Marielle. The domaine is an impressive 15ha in total, but in classic 'small is beautiful' Burgundian fashion it takes little bits of 22 different appellations to cobble...

Slightly less backward than the 2014 was at the same stage, but every bit as impressive
(or possibly even more so), this comes from two parcels of different sizes. It’s still a very youthful, vigorous wine with plenty of structure, notes of aniseed and nutmeg and a core of bramble and blueberry fruit...

October 2018

Tasted blind, the 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts showed beautifully, offering up a lovely bouquet of dark, plummy fruit complemented by nuances of incense, Asian spices and smoked duck. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and lavish, with a rich but compellingly sapid core of fruit, juicy acids and largely concealed satiny structuring tannins.

November 2016

Deep red-ruby. A touch of reduction slightly mutes the extremely primary aromas of purple berries, black cherry and menthol. Then wonderfully round, spicy and sweet, in a surprisingly extroverted style, with boysenberry, black raspberry, chocolate and licorice flavors complemented by a seductive smoky quality. This impressively thick, broad wine delivers outstanding palate coverage without any undue weight. "My style," notes Grivot, who seeks to make elegant wines "with no brutality." He does two to five gentle pigeages per cuvée, more to break the berries and extend the fermentations than merely for the purposes of greater extraction. The extremely long, rising finish features plush tannins. These vines range in age from 20 to 90 years, with the average age around 50, according to Grivot.
