DOM. JEAN GRIVOT
Les Pruliers, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru 2005
Along with Henri Jayer, Domain Jean Grivot is one of the greatest names in Burgundy. Historically, Jean Grivot was also the first family growers to break rank from the co-operatives and make wine under their own name. Through inheritance, the family have now own some of the best vineyard in Chambolle, Vosne-Romanee, Echézeaux and Richebourg.
The domaine continues its excellent reputation under the guidance of the experienced Etienne Grivot who favours a laisse-faire approach to winemaking. Style wise, the Grivots are prized for their scrumptiously rich texture and hauntingly exotic perfumes.
