1995 grivot nuits 1er roncières

grivot roncières

1995 Jean Grivot, Nuits St.Georges Les Roncières try to find this wine...
From a half-bottle. Medium-plus ruby-red. A nose that remains relatively understated; faint red fruit overlain with equally faint, sweet caramel. Some fat, concentrated and with perfect acidty – this really dances across the palate. The tannins retain some grain but are on the wane. I rather fell-out with c.97-98 Grivots as unbalanced tannic monsters, but this is lovely – I’m happy to have a few in the cellar.
Rebuy – Yes

    I bought some 1996 Premier Cru’s of Grivot and enjoyed them. I found his basic Bourgogne Rouge 1999 and 2001 very basic and, even for a reasonable price, pretty unrewarding (perhaps not surprising for the 2001, but a bit disappointing for 1999).

    I haven’t tried any of their grander wines from more recent years yet – what do you put the change of style from 97/98 down to?

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
