About this Item

2008 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Rouges
2 (1 x 2) 750ml

Etienne Grivot took over from his father in 1990, becoming the fifth-generation Grivot to be making wine in Vosne-Romanée. In 1994, Etienne started to find his own voice and make a range of very fine wines. He has since reduced yields, fine-tuned his work in both the vineyards and the cellar, and driven quality steadily upwards. The grapes are 100% destemmed and the fermentation is allowed to begin naturally. Four cooperages are used to avoid the signature of any one particular barrel maker. Now assisted by his two children, Mathilde and Hubert, Etienne produces a range of stunning wines which possess real depth and class. When asked for his secret to success, he owns that ‘there’s no recipe, it’s very personal and as a result it’s very frustrating as one is never content’.

Critics Ratings

‘Light ruby color. A high-toned and ultra-fresh nose is both cool and pure while offering up spicy floral aromas of various red berries and earth nuances. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension to the delicious and well-detailed middle weight flavors that culminate in a dusty, firm and well-balanced finish. There is some of the hallmark austerity of a typical Les Rouges and for my taste this should continue to reward another 5 to 7 years or so of additional bottle age. Drink 2022+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 91/100 (Apr 2016)
