Grivelet is for various reasons a quite notorius estate in Burgundian history .. but lets focus at the wine at hand – a Vosne-Romanée village 1961. It’s a fully mature wine in good conditions – a slight metallic note after some time in the glass does nevertheless suggest it’s a bit past it’s peak. On the other hand – the fruit on the midpalate after 15 minutes in the glass confirms that it’s still doing well. The nose is quite expressive although fully tertiary with plenty of sous-bois, orange peel layered with red matured fruit. On the palate well structured with some grip from the tannins still, nice fruit that is quite juicy and fullfilling. A good mature Burgundy – still enjoyable for those who like them fully mature and a bit.
