Description

This is a blend from half a dozen different vineyards within Vosne-Romanée and lovely fruit is evident right across the palate before a very stylish finish. Etienne has tamed the tannins beautifully as he set out to do. -Jasper Morris MW

This has been one of the most exciting cellars in the whole of Burgundy for the last few vintages, a fact which is beginning to be reflected in the pricing. The significant reduction in crop this year, which Etienne Grivot ascribes more to the extreme winter cold than poor flowering, is also a factor. Etienne has been working hard to refine the tannins in his wines, and has surely succeeded in 2010, by producing wines of great energy but with suave, sophisticated finishes. These are brilliant wines that unfortunately, are in short supply.
