Tracing its origins back to the French Revolution, Domaine Jean Grivot is one of the great family-owned estates of Burgundy. With considerable landholdings in top 1er and Grand Cruvineyards throughout the Cote de Nuits, the domaine combines organic farming, traditional winemaking techniques, and modern flourishes to create wines of uncommon depth and class. Year after year, Grivot’s 1er Crus from Vosne Romanee are some of the highest scoring wines in their categories, and Estate Wine Brokers is proud to present two of the very best from the 2015 vintage:
Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne Romanee Les Beaux Monts 1er Cru 2015 750ml - $249 each
WA 95-97 “The 2015 Les Beaux Monts has a tightly-wound bouquet that needed some coaxing from the glass, eventually unfurling with enticing aromas of small red cherries, raspberry, crushed violets and a subtle slate-like scent. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, wonderful structure, an imperious Les Beaux Monts that stretches its wings towards the finish and delivers a quite compelling, vibrant, energetic finish with enormous depth. This is probably the best from this vineyard in 2015. (NM)” (12/2016)
Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne Romanee Les Suchots 1er Cru 2015 750ml - $299 each
WA 95-97 “The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots has an exquisite bouquet, extremely pure with scents of redcurrant, blueberry, violets, cola and wet limestone. Like the 2015 Les Beaux Monts, there is wondrous focus and precision here. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin. This is full of energy and tension, with a killer line of acidity and wonderful structure and precision towards the mineral-rich finish. It will require several years in bottle, but it has the substance and complexity to repay patience. (NM)” (12/2016)
