2011 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, Jean Grivot

Etienne Grivot describes his Clos Vougeot as “a big wine that he has to educate”. It is clear that he is a very good teacher, as he has managed to give this monumental wine a rare elegance and sensual quality. It has wonderful volume that somehow seems to expand in your mouth. Cool raspberry and red berry fruit overlays a firm tannic structure and mineral finish. This is a serious, but very attractive wine, with balance, concentration and a finish of epic length.

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.
