This is a can’t miss buying opportunity on one of the most famous Grand Cru vineyards in all of Burgundy!
At the end of the eighteenth century, just before the French Revolution, Joseph Grivot sold his vineyards in the Haut Cotes to settle in Vosne-Romanee, but is was his son Gaston who developed the domaine. In 1919 Gaston sold vines in the lesser areas to buy a large parcel of the grand cru Clos de Vougeot. You can still see the gate he built today! He was one of the first oenologists to graduate from Dijon University in the 1920’s, followed by his son Jean a few years later. Together they made the Grivot name famous in the wine world.

Burghound 94 Points A restrained nose proposes a well-layered mix of plum, essence of cherry and pungent earth scents along with a hint of the sauvage. The textured, concentrated and powerful large-scaled flavors possess remarkable density on the mid-palate thanks to the abundant dry extract that buffers the very firm tannic spine and slightly softens the austere and serious but not hard finale. As good as the 1ers in the range are, there is simply another dimension of depth present here. In sum this is terrific but patience will definitely be required.
Wine Enthusiast 96 Points This offers a firm, dense structure, with dark tannins and big, ripe, opulent fruits. At the same time the elegance that is the hallmark of the domaine is equally present, stylish red fruits and a velvet texture. The wine needs to age to be at its peak, although it is beautiful now.
