2012 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts, Jean Grivot

On this terroir, which generally produces fruit-forward wines of excellent purity, Etienne’s style really comes into its own. Absolutely gorgeous, seductive, ample, it is difficult to be too complimentary about this cuvée. The palate does indeed boast fabulous purity of primary, juicy raspberry fruit. A sensual, silky texture and an almost surprisingly long and powerful finish complete the package for this quite simply stunning 1er Cru Vosne.

2012 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.
