Estate Notes

Jean Grivot's Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts 2008 illustrates the unusually high quality of the premiers crus of Vosne-Romanée, which are on a level considerably closer to the grands crus than to the village wines.

Jean Grivot's exceptionally pure, elegant Pinot Noirs are consistently poised at the pinnacle of premium Burgundy. Grivot's 10 hectares of vineyards in Vosne-Romanée (including the Les Beaux Monts vineyard) are managed by Étienne and his wife Marielle Grivot – the fifth generation of Grivots to run this elite Burgundy estate.

Since Étienne took over from his father in 1990 he has traded lesser quality vineyards for more prestigious parcels within Burgundy's best sites, including Clos de Vougeot, and his holdings now cover a staggering 15 different appellations! Étienne practices a gentle and non-intrusive Burgundian winemaking style, believing that dense planting for small crops fully expresses the character of his full, rich Pinot Noir fruit.

Reviews

“The 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts is fresh, vibrant and beautifully explosive. The rich, layered fruit finds a fabulous counterpoint in the nuanced aromatics and chiseled finish. This is a beautiful, complete wine with a very bright future.” Antonio Galloni

"Good full, bright red. Wonderfully aromatic nose offers raspberry, cherry, wild herbs, flowers, white pepper and cumin. Silky on entry, then gripping and sweet in the mid-palate; a distinct step up in intensity and plenitude from the village wines. The mounting, energetic finish really stains the palate." Stephen Tanzer
