2012 Nuits-St-Georges Les Lavières, Jean Grivot

Made from grapes grown in a lieu-dit just beneath the 1er Cru Aux Murgers that is quite flat and exposed, this cuvée shows how the more delicate touch of a Vosne-Romanée producer suits Nuits-St-Georges well. Dark fruit-scented, seductive on the palate with a rich and ripe core of fruit and tight yet very well integrated tannic structure, this strikes an excellent balance between power and delicacy.

2012 Nuits-St-Georges Les Lavières, 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.
