A heavily demanded domaine in Vosne-Romanee, the domaine was managed by Jean Grivot's son Etienne from 1987 and transferred to Etienne's talented, educated and passionate daughter Mathilde in 2017, who has brought a fresh approach to this fine domaine while keeping the long time tradition of the Grivot family in which the quality of wine stems from meticulous vineyard work throughout the year. Domaine Jean Grivot has wonderful line-ups of the best Vosne-Romanee Grand Cru and 1er Cru such as Richebourg, Echezeaux, Vosne-Romanee Les Beaumonts, Brulees, Suchots, and Boudots. Nowadays they still remain a traditional Vosne-Romanee style with notable spiciness in the backbone to fit in the body.
Today we are pleased to offer their Vosne-Romanee Les Brulees 1er Cru from 2017, which was scored 2nd highest by Neal Martin among other productions from Jean Grivot in the 2017 vintage, just behind Richebourg Grand Cru, with 94-96pts (Richebourg scored 96-98pts). Despite its high quality, the price is just a huge fraction of the Richebourg, at just HK$1,580 per bottle vs HK$11,374 average price of their Richebourg^ -

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Aux Brûlées 1er Cru has a very precise, focused bouquet of black cherries, crushed stone, hints of pressed iris and Provençal herbs. This seems to unfurl as I swirl it in the glass. The medium-bodied palate is quite fleshy and rounded in the mouth, offering very supple tannin and plenty of brambly red fruit. The mineralité is only apparent toward the final quarter. Not the most persistent of Grivot’s crus, but very seductive.
Subject to final confirmation.
