2015 Jean Grivot Nuits St George 1er Cru “Aux Boudots”

Notes of sweet wild berries, spices, rose petal, orange rind and potpourri, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample palate that's plush, layered and fragrant, with a deep core of fruit and a long finish. This is a high-class Boudots.


Etienne Grivot succeeded his father, Jean, in 1987, and today presides over 15 hectares of vines spread accross Nuits, Vosne, Vougeot and Echézeaux. This is one of the modern-day, benchmark Burgundian domaines. The estate’s denselyplanted old vines (the average age is 40 years old) produce naturally-low yields and, together with Etienne’s organic approach to viticulture and sensible winemaking, result in vivid, pure, very well-balanced Burgundies. The wines are much more softly extracted than when Etienne first started, the winemaking is incredibly flexible, depending on the vintage, but usually only 5% of stalks are retained, and rarely more than a third of the barrels are new. A reference point for good Burgundy
