Provenance & Masters Behind the Bottle
Domaine Jean Grivot is a multi-generational winemaking legacy. Etienne Grivot and his wife Marielle (another vintner family descendant) currently steer the estate, lending their inimitable finesse and experience. Etienne gained experience in Burgundy and Bordeaux before inheriting the domaine from his father, Jean Grivot. His transparent and unpretentious approach to winemaking is highly esteemed.
Vineyard & Craftsmanship
The Grivot estate boasts a mix of old and younger vines, some exceeding 50 years of age. Vines are cultivated on shallow, well-draining soil rich in limestone and clay. Grapes from the individual parcels are vinified separately, allowing each terroir to express its identity. The balance achieved from blending different parcels has become a hallmark of Grivot wines. Their limited-production nature adds to the allure for collectors and connoisseurs alike.
Aging & Investment Value
Domaine Jean Grivot wines exhibit remarkable aging potential, often peaking 20 to 30 years after the vintage. This lengthy maturation timeline, along with consistent high ratings, make them an attractive long-term investment. Each bottle is more than just a sum of its parts; it's a story worth savoring and a legacy worth investing in.
