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

92 Points Allen Meadows
A well-layered nose offers up a variety of spice and herbal tea notes, including anise, clove, cinnamon and soy on the mostly red berry fruit aromas that display only a hint of secondary character. There is a lovely sense of purity to the sleekly muscled flavors that possess real drive, indeed this does a slow but sure build from the mid-palate on through the explosive and tangy finish. This is not particularly dense but it is a wine of harmony, balance, power and fine length. Moreover to my taste it is still very much on the way up and thus while it could be enjoyed now, I would counsel at least some additional patience. Tasted twice since 2015 with consistent results.
