2011 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts, Jean Grivot

Every year this wine is oversubscribed and it is easy to see why. Yet again Etienne has made a brilliant wine of class and breeding. It has a complex ethereal bouquet with great lift and purity. Raspberry and red berry fruit, Asian spice, floral notes and a real sense of cool freshness. The palate has a glorious satin-like texture, a lovely freshness and brilliant balance. This is a classic example of Vosne Romanée, with abundant charm, precision and grace.

2011 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts, 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.
