    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine Jean Grivot, Vosne Romanée, Aux Reignots, 1er Cru, 2010

    As lively, pretty and high-toned as the Beaux Monts, with the sensuality of the Brulèes, this is a class act indeed; shapely and beautifully, balanced this offers flavours of red berry, cherry and cherry blossom with touches of redcurrant and strawberry.

    ABV:
    13%
    93-95/100
    Antonio Galloni, Vinous
    The 2010 Vosne-Romanée Aux Reignots is a big, powerful wine. The dark red fruit reveals considerable density, while the 100% new oak gives the wine an additional measure of textural volume and depth. Sweet floral and spiced notes develop in the glass, but ultimately the Reignots is a wine that emphasizes fruit and structure. Patience is the key.

    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.
