2004 Echézeaux Grand Cru, Jean Grivot

Lovely flesh here and remarkably open for a grand cru. Rich fleshy bramble and red berry fruits dominate the nose with a toasted, caramel edge beneath. The palate shows more intensity and one can feel the grand cru complexity and breeding coming through. There is an intensity to the fruit here which is thick and tight at this early stage. Powerful tannins and a real bite of minerality on the finish ensure this wine a promising future.

2004 Echézeaux Grand Cru, Jean Grivot
Domaine Jean Grivot

Patriarch Jean Grivot passed on the domaine to his son, Etienne, in 1987, who is now passing the torch on to his daughter Mathilde. With densely planted old vines, tended organically, yields are low and complexity high. As the grapes pass through Etienne and Mathilde’s cellar, her lightness of touch builds on the trend of this superb address towards purity and refinement, without losing any of the tell-tale structure. At this benchmark Burgundy domaine, Grivot’s wines remain impressive.
