Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers 2015 - Burgundy, France


The Story

Domaine Grivot is based in Vosne-Romanée, in the Cote du Nuits of the northern part of Burgundy, and is home to many of the great domaines in Burgundy. Currently it is owned by the fifth generation of the Grivot family, Etienne and his wife Marielle Grivot, Etienne took over over from his father Jean in 1987. Domaine Grivot was founded in the 1930’s and was one of the first domaines in Burgundy to bottle and sell the wines themselves. Across this 15 hectare domaine, the vine age is on average between 45-to 50-years old and covers 22 appellations (18 red) with holdings in three Grand crus: Clos de Vougeot, Echezeaux and Richebourg. In addition to the Grand cru vineyards, Domaine Grivot holds eight Premier cru vineyards including the highly regarded Les Beau Monts and Suchots vineyards. Etienne’s approach to the vineyard is one of farming with minimal impact to the environment and prevents the use of any chemicals in the vineyard, organic farming known as ‘Sans certification’.

M+Q Notes

“The 2015 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Pruliers is slightly more effervescent and candied on the nose compared to Etienne Grivot's other wines from this appellation, hints of orange sorbet and marmalade developing alongside the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp acidity, a firm backbone here, a Pruliers built for long-term ageing and delivering superb concentration. I can imagine this demanding 4-5 years in bottle.” - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
