I’m not a very big fan of the 2009 vintage, but some 2009s are simply gorgeous – one is the very fine Echezeaux from Jean Grivot. The bouquet is oozing with minerality, red cherries, raspberries and liquorice. On the palate the fruit is very forward and outgoing, good acidity and very fine balance. The fruit is very fresh and vibrant for a 2009. A top end Echezeaux – what a adorable wine! Must say i’m getting increasingly impressed with the progress at Domaine Grivot.

- Dégustation Prestige – Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru This year Grand Jours de Bourgogne included a Dégustation Prestige of Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru … as it did two years ago.

- Visit Domaine Grivot: Tasting of the 2016s from cask Domaine Grivot seem to go from strength to strength making lovely and enjoyable wines. The 2015s showed very well indeed, with their generous and charming style. The 2016 vintage is quite another ballgame, as the April frost played a big role in how the individual wines have turned out. This is especially the case for ...

- Visit Domaine Grivot: Tasting of the 2015s from cask To be honest I was very impressed indeed by the 2015s when I tasted them in June 2016 – it was before malo, so I was quite cautious not to be too exited, but already at that point I felt that something special was fermenting in the barrels in the cellars at Domaine Grivot. I was ...
- Terroir Insight: Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée Aux Brûlées Domaine Grivot is making a large range of 1er crus, and while many are very fine indeed .. some stand out at least in the 2014 and the 2015 vintage. One of my new favorites – always had the Aux Reignots as the top dog (or is that hog) of the 1er crus – is the ...
- Tasting of the 2014s from Domaine Grivot Domaine Grivot has improved quality tremendously over the last 5 to 10 years, optimizing and improving the wines little by little each year. The wines are made with a lighter hand with the oak less present in the young wines, and since 2009 the micro details and the purity of the wines have been significantly improved. ...
- One of the keys to find the best 2015 red Burgundies I have tasted 2015 Burgundy reds in March, June and November 2016 and found some special wines in this vintage – wines with extraordinary qualities .. wines that seem to have an extra level of energy and tension. In June I struggled to see the pattern and the key to find these wines – but finally ...
- Burgundy Impressions November 2016 – part 2 Domaine Georges Noëllat in Vosne-Romanee Maxime Cheurlin is one of the most talented producers in Burgundy – and he has produced some beautiful and energetic 2015s. The lineup offered a few new wines – and they were just as the more reknown appellations very balanced and seductive. Maxime Cheurlin and his two lovely dogs in front of ...
