2020 Nuits-St-Georges Aux Lavières, Jean Grivot

Aux Lavières is tucked just beneath 1er Cru Aux Murgers, on the Vosne side of the appellation, and it’s quite a step up on your regular village cuvée. This 2020 shows clarity, energy and density. What a wonderful wine this vintage. Excellent grip and length.

TASTING NOTES

The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Lavières showed just a little reduction on the nose, scents of baked cherries and light earthy aromas emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, quite strict and slightly chalky in texture with a touch of brittleness on the finish. Fine.
