Domaine Jean Grivot Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2017

"Here the less expressive nose flirts with reduction though a wisp of red berry fruit is discernible so I would suggest decanting this if you're game to try a bottle young. Otherwise the succulent and nicely rich flavors are blessed with abundant amounts of dry extract that coats the palate and buffers the moderately firm tannic spine on the youthfully austere and sneaky long finish." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits St. Georges “Les Charmois” Village 2017

R995.00 inc. VAT
"Relatively firm reduction masks the nose today. Otherwise there is a bit more mid-palate density to the still supple medium weight flavors that are also agreeably energetic on the lingering finish that is sufficiently pliant such that this too could be enjoyed in its youth." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits St. Georges “Les Pruliers” Premier Cru 2017

"More discreet wood influence easily allows the aromas of plum, dark currant, earth and evident sauvage character to be appreciated. The richer, more powerful and more complex if less mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavors are blessed with plenty of dry extract that helps to buffer the very firm, robust, compact and youthfully austere finale. I really like the sense of energy and while this is a big wine, it's not a block of tannin." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée “Bossières” Village 2017

"This is aromatically similar to the straight Vosne with perhaps just a bit more floral influence. The rich and enveloping flavors possess a velvety mouthfeel while offering slightly better depth and persistence on the balanced finale. This is lovely and very, very Vosne in basic character. One to consider." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée “Chaumes” Premier Cru 2017

"Here too there is enough reduction to dominate the fruit. The seductively textured medium-bodied flavors possess a good amount of sappy dry extract that coats the palate on the rich, intense and impressively persistent finish. This isn't as refined or stony as the Combe d'Orveau but there is more volume and density." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée Village 2017

"An overtly spicy and appealingly fresh, cool and pure nose reflects notes of black pinot fruit, violet, Asian tea and a wisp of anise. There is both good volume and mid-palate fleshiness to the delicious and seductively textured flavors that culminate in an agreeably punchy, focused and mildly austere finale. Like the Lavières, this is sufficiently tightly wound to need at least some patience and has the stuffing to reward up to a decade of cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
