Jean Grivot Echezeaux Grand Cru 2006

Vol- 75cl

A gorgeously seductive nose offers up a layered and airy blend of red and blue pinot fruit, spice notes and perfumed cassis and violet nuances that lead to robust, even rugged big-boned flavors that possess marvelous layers, a velvety mouth feel and striking length. This is a sappy, powerful and serious effort that is clearly built to age.93 points Allen Meadows – Burghound

Good full red. Wild aromas of black raspberry, smoke and minerals; quite showy today. Sweet, suave and fine-grained, with impressive density and lovely inner-mouth perfume. Very sexy, aromatic wine, with harmonious acidity lifting and extending the finishing flavors of dark fruits and minerals. A beauty. 93 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

From a southwestern appendage of its appellation – wedged between Les Suchots and Beaux Monts (and part of the former estate of Grivot’s aunt, Jacqueline Jayer) – a 2006 Echezeaux smells of cherry and red currant, game, and an unusually alkaline minerality. This displays depth, breadth, yet also vivacious interplay on the palate. Ample tannins remain fine-grained and in no way block the juicy expression of fresh berries and red meat in a long finish. I wonder whether this will ever equal the mysterious allure of its Suchots or Beaumonts counterparts, but I would suggest giving it 2-3 years in bottle and then plan on following it for at least half a dozen more.92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

There’s lovely purity and focus to the black cherry, black currant and mineral flavors. Though rich, there’s a firm underpinning of tannins and spicy oak, followed by a nice lingering aftertaste. 91 points Wine Spectator

Domaine Jean Grivot’s history tracks back to the French Revolution, when the Grivot family started their move from the Jura to Vosne-Romanée, although their origins goes back to Italy’s Val d’Aosta.

Jean Grivot took over after his dad’s death in 1955, and since 1959 all the domaine’s wines were estate bottled. Ever since, the domaine gained exceptional reputation for both the quality of the wines and the transparency of the respective terroirs.

In 1982 Jean’s son Etienne joined him, after completing his formal Aenologie studies in Beaune and stage both in France and California. Gradually, responsibilities were transferred to Etienne, and since 1987 he was in charge of both the vineyards and cellars.

The domaine is going through an exciting phase as responsibility transferred from the hands of Etienne to the talented, educated and passionate hands of his daughter Mathilde, who brings a fresh approach to this fine domaine while keeping the long time tradition of the Grivot family. The process of “generational change” in Domaine Grivot has been extremely smooth and very successful. The winery and cellars have just completed a massive reconstruction, bringing it to top modern standards.

Mathilde and Etienne believe in getting quality first thanks to meticulous vineyard work throughout the year. The result of this hard work is healthy, ripe (both phenolic and sugar levels) and depth of concentration and flavor of the fruit. The wine-making technique is classic modern. The fruit is completely destemmed. A 5 to 7 days of pre- fermentation maceration at 12-15 degrees is applied, and after about 3 weeks the wines are transferred to casks. About 40% of the barrels being used are new.

Over the last decade, Domaine Grivot is considered one of the top and most consistent names in Vosne-Romanée.
