Winemaker's Notes

The emphasis here is always on exceptionally pure, elegant, finely etched Pinot Noir fruit. Jean Grivot wines are well-balanced, and never too alcoholic or tannic. They are consistently among Burgundy's best, and drink well young, but also have the unusual quality of aging very nicely. The better vintages of the Premiers and Grands Crus last up to 12 years.

"Good full medium red. Aromas of cherry, raspberry and red licorice lifted by a floral topnote. Lush and broad in texture but a bit youthfully inexpressive, showing less early sweetness than most of the 2004s at this address."
-International Wine Cellar

"This has aggressive tannins now, and needs air to reveal its mocha, cherry, spice and mineral notes, yet shows a purity like a beam from start to finish."
-Wine Spectator

90-92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound.com): "Grivot said that the malo had only just finished 3 weeks before my visit and the nose reflects it as the heavy reduction rendered the nose almost impossible to read. The big, rich and youthfully austere flavors are bold, intense, powerful and chewy with an earthy, well-structured and impressively long finish."
