Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Domaine Jean Grivot, Nuits St Georges, Les Pruliers, 1er Cru, 2012

As Nuits should be, this is very different to Grivots silky Vosnes, offering huge energy and character. Bright, crunchy concentrated and gripping forest berry fruit flavours infused with minerals. Long persistant flavours. Les Pruliers, one of the unsung heroes of Nuits-St.-Georges situated on the south side of the appellation, yields classic, complete Nuits that combines power, freshness, richness and minerality.

Domaine Jean Grivot

Etienne Grivot succeeded his father, Jean, in 1987, and today presides over 15 hectares of vines spread accross Nuits, Vosne, Vougeot and Echézeaux. This is one of the modern-day, benchmark Burgundian domaines. The estate’s densely-planted old vines (the average age is 40 years old) produce naturally-low yields and, together with Etienne’s organic approach to viticulture and sensitive winemaking, result in vivid, pure, very well-balanced Burgundies. The wines are much more softly extracted than when Etienne first started, the winemaking is incredibly flexible, depending on the vintage, but usually only 5% of stalks are retained, and rarely more than a third of the barrels are new. Daughter Mathilde and son Hubert have committed to working at the Domaine and have taken on more responsibility from Etienne since 2017, so the estate's future seems secure. A reference point Burgundy Domaine.
