Estate Notes

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 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 Clos de Vougeot is gorgeous in 2009. This is an especially dark, brooding Clos Vougeot. Dark red cherries, plums, tar and licorice are some of the many notes that take shape in this explosive, beguiling Burgundy. The sheer energy and drive make the Clos Vougeot a standout. Graphite, mint and licorice linger on the pointed, focused finish.

"Etienne Grivot’s 2009s were some of the most exciting wines I tasted on my most recent trip to Burgundy.” eRobertParker.com
