Provenance & Masters Behind the Bottle
Domaine Robert Groffier is led by the skilled duo of Serge Groffier and his son, Nicolas. The Groffiers have been tending vines in Burgundy for seven generations. They are revered for a distinct wine-making style that brings forth the vineyard's true essence, without overshadowing it with excessive oak or other interventions. Serge is known for his meticulous vineyard management, while Nicolas brings a modern touch, emphasizing precision and clarity in the wines.
Vineyard & Craftsmanship
Their parcels include some of the most coveted vineyards in Chambolle-Musigny, such as the Premier Cru "Les Amoureuses" and the Grand Cru "Bonnes Mares." The Groffiers employ organic farming techniques and practice minimal intervention during winemaking. A balance of old vines, ranging from 30 to 70 years, adds complexity and character. Exclusivity reigns, as only a limited number of bottles are produced each year.
Aging & Investment Value
Groffier wines have proven to age exceptionally well, with the ability to mature and evolve over decades. This longevity, coupled with their limited availability, places them high on the list for savvy wine investors.
