Jean Grivot's Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Roncières 2010 was purchased in its original case.

Jean Grivot's exceptionally pure, elegant Pinot Noirs are consistently poised at the pinnacle of premium Burgundy. The Roncière 1er Cru is sited in the Zone de Saint-Georges, or central section of Nuits-Saint-Georges near the town itself. Roncière takes its name from the soil, which is so poor, that once only 'ronces' (brambles) could grow there. This rare treat yields from a tiny 0.5-hectare parcel of vines planted in 1959.

Since Étienne took over from his father in 1990 he has traded lesser quality vineyards for more prestigious parcels within Burgundy's best sites 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.

"The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Roncieres impresses for its verve and cut. Tea leaves, exotic spices, dried flowers and sweet red berries are woven together nicely in this finessed, elegant Nuits. Clean mineral notes reappear on the finish to give the wine much of its energy and focus. The Roncieres is classy from start to finish." robertparker.com
