Beautiful. Dark in color, refined in the mineral aromas. A full-bodied Pinot that is reserved and classy, with complex red berries, menthol, wet earth complexity. Tannins are well-integrated.

90+ Stephen Tanzer

Precise aromas of black fruits, bitter cherry and dark chocolate. Rich, sweet and concentrated but quite backward; perfumed in the mouth for a young Grivot... Finishes with strong, palate-coating tannins and excellent length.

18Jancis Robinson

Very, very rich and concentrated. Admirably complete.

Interesting contrast of elegance and austerity with remarkably fine, intense, earthy fruit and structured flavors that offer excellent sève and solid structure.

89-91The Wine Advocate

...gorgeously spicy, pure, raspberry aromas. Medium-bodied and refined, it is a harmonious, gorgeously ripened, satin-textured offering. Asian spices are intermingled with currants, raspberries, and cherries in this sweet, tannin-packed...


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Vougeot, Clos de Vougeot

Clos de Vougeot is a walled vineyard that dominates the tiny commune of Vougeot in Burgundy’s Nuits-St.-Georges. The 124-acre Grand Cru vineyard includes a historic chateau that in 1945 was purchased by the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, an organization devoted to promoting the traditions of Burgundy and its wines. The impressive chateau is the organization’s headquarters. Clos de Vougeot was established as a vineyard by Cistercian monks in the 12th century, then sold off to private owners after the French Revolution. The vineyard is unusual for a Grand Cru in that it includes land that runs down to the main road. The soil is light limestone with sand. Principal landowners are Chateau de la Tour, with 13 acres; Meo-Camuzet, 7.5 acres; Rebourseau, 5.5 acres; Louis Jadot, 5.3 acres; and Leroy, 5 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
