Vosne-Romanée 2007, Jean Grivot
Courtesy of the Justerini & Brooks Burgundy 2007 tasting. Back in 2006 I tasted at the Domaine Jean Grivot and was over-awed by the quality of the wines and the generosity of the tasting. M. Grivot told us not to go over the top in expressing our gratitude... he was simply making sure the wines were tasted and aerated for the family's Saturday lunch. At the J&B tasting this Vosne 2007 and an immediate wow factor. Fresh purple colour, beautiful violet, rose and raspberry aromas. Bright acidity, cheery fruits, licorice root, fine tannins. A lovely wine. The domaine started picking on September 5th.
