TA 95
Tim Atkin

So close to Vosne-Romanée that it touches its southern border, this is a serious, rich, dense concentrated Nuits that combines structure with fruit exuberance. Savoury, smoky and intense, it’s like a less austere version of neighbouring Malconsorts. 2015 was supposed to be the last vintage for a while because of replanting, but the vineyard appears to have had a reprieve. 2026-35

Here the wood treatment isn't subtle though neither is it sufficient to overshadow the wonderfully fresh and layered nose of blue pinot fruit, cassis, earth and broad range of spice elements. The mouthfeel of the broad-shouldered flavors is equally seductive and even sleeker but despite the generous mid-palate there is solid muscle and a firm core of tannins supporting the powerful and driving finish. As big as this is, it still manages to remain refined and well-balanced. Lovely stuff but once again, extended patience will be required if you wish to experience this at its peak.
Barrel Sample: 91-94

A lush, velvety red, this sports black cherry, blackberry, plum, earth and subtle dark chocolate flavors. Firm, yet harmonious and succulent, ending with a long, refined finish. Best from 2022 through 2040.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots is the last vintage that comprises all the vines since half the vineyard was pulled up, as the oldest vines—the most venerable older than Etienne Grivot's father—are no longer productive. It has a perfumed nose, rose petals and violet infusing the red and black fruit, understated at first but gradually unfolding in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very tensile, but I felt this was just missing some matière and depth toward the conservative finish. I wanted it to give me more. Maybe it will with time?

The Grivots originally came from the Jura, but established themselves in Burgundy at the time of the French revolution. They first settled in Nuits-St.-Georges, later moving into Vosne-Romanée. While Burgundian tradition concentrates primarily on vineyards and viticulture, the Grivot family realized quite early on that oenology was equally important in producing fine wines, and Gaston Grivot was among the first growers to earn an oenology degree from the University of Dijon in the 1920's.

Jean Grivot, Gaston's son, also studied at the University of Dijon. His marriage into the Jayer family (for whom Grivot also consults and produces wines) consolidated family holdings; vineyards in Chambolle, Vosne-Romanée, Les Rouges and Echézeaux were added through inheritance. A parcel of Richebourg was acquired in 1984 from the Vienot estate. Etienne Grivot, the family's youngest vintner, now runs this remarkable estate. He has been praised as one of Burgundy's most innovative new talents.

Etienne Grivot believes in dense planting for small crops, with a continuing emphasis on full, rich Pinot Noir fruit. He strives to make ripe wines with a complete, well-rounded bouquet. Grivot formerly employed the controversial oenologist Guy Accad. While Etienne learned a great deal from the Accad experience, he now practices gentle and non-intrusive winemaking.

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.
