Etienne and his wife Marielle (Patrick Bize’s sister) took over from his father in 1990, making him the 5th generation of Grivots to make wine in Vosne-Romanée. In the 1930s it was one of the first domaines to bottle and sell the wines themselves.

The Grivots go back a long way in Burgundy. Jean Grivot, whose name continues to appear on the labels, took over from his father in 1955 and handed on to his son Etienne in the early 1980s.

There is an average age of 45-to 50-year-old vines across this 15ha domaine which covers 22 appellations (18 red) with holdings in Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Clos de Vougeot, Echézeaux and Richebourg. Etienne produces a range of stunning wines which possess real depth and class.

Tasting Notes

91 Points Allen Meadows
Elegant and pure yet still reserved wonderfully complex black fruit aromas that lead to spicy, intense, very ripe, opulent and powerful flavors with a rich, velvety and explosive finish. This is very promising as the underlying material is superb as is the balance.
