2016s from Jean Grivot - New Reduced Prices

Tracing its origins back to the French Revolution, Domaine Jean Grivot is one of the great family-owned estates of Burgundy. With considerable landholdings in top 1er and Grand Cru vineyards throughout the Côte de Nuits, the Domaine combines organic farming practices and traditional winemaking techniques to create wines of profound expressiveness and balance. Estate Wine Brokers is thrilled to present the highly rated 2016s from Grivot at the lowest retail prices in the country:

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits St. Georges Ronciere 1er Cru 2016 750ml - $179
94 Points Wine Spectator "Blueberry, boysenberry and violet flavors are backed by a firm structure in this expressive red. Balanced and poised for a nice evolution over the next two decades, with a long, tangy finish. (BS)" (01/2019)

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits St. Georges Le Boudots 1er Cru 2016 750ml - $199
94 Points Wine Spectator "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. (BS)" (01/2019)

Domaine Jean Grivot Echezeaux Grand Cru 2016 750ml - $369
92-94 Points Wine Advocate "The 2016 Echézeaux Grand Cru was affected by the frost: 40% to 45% of the vines were lost. Etienne said that the lieu-dit of Les Créots is an incredible vineyard and managed to overcome what could have been much worse damage. It has a beautiful, sensual, very pure bouquet with Morello, crushed strawberry and hints of vanilla pod. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and gorgeous black cherry and tart redcurrant fruit. It does not possess the length or density of the 2015, although I feel it shrugged off the frost damage better than Grivot's Clos Vougeot. (NM)" (12/2017)

Domaine Jean Grivot Richebourg Grand Cru 2016 750ml - $1,269
96-98 Points Wine Advocate "The 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru was not touched at all by the frost, so there are the full five barrels this year (sometimes it can be six). It has a majestic bouquet with ample blackberry, raspberry preserve and brown spice scents, later a touch of white flowers and truffle. This is so mercurial in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. This is beautifully focused, tensile and brimming with energy, yet it remains linear, almost aloof right to the finish, a covert sign that it should not be broached for at least a decade like most great Richebourgs. An aristocrat. You know, pity the poor pro Burgundy reviewer. We spend hours in ice-cold cellars, fingers fighting off hypothermia as they bash away at the keyboard precariously balanced between two barrels. Thankfully, the likes of Etienne Grivot have constructed cozy, warm tasting rooms with tables and chairs, even Wi-Fi. Perhaps none have the eye-catching view over the backyard of DRC and beyond like this address, but it does make tasting a damn lot easier. And when the wines are the caliber of Grivot, then it makes the whole thing an enjoyable experience. (NM)" (12/2017)
