Wine:

Radiating a vibrant energy, the 2017 red Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Roncière is an articulate wine, driven by an almost creamy tannic structure that is rich and seamlessly integrated, showcasing outstanding persistence. Quintessentially reflective of its Nuits heritage, it is profoundly Burgundian in its crafting, capturing the depth and intensity characteristic of this illustrious terroir.

Vinification:

Vines aged 50 years or more on 0.50 ha, located between Les Porêts and Les Pruliers. Hand-harvested. 100% destemmed. Cold pre-fermentation maceration for around 5 days, alcoholic fermentation using only indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel vats, daily pumping over with temperature and density controls, very little punching down depending on the context of the vintage. Vatting time averages 20 days. Malolactic fermentation followed by 15 months' ageing in barrels, 30% of which are new and the remainder aged for 1, 2 and 3 wines, then racking and massing for 2 to 3 months in stainless steel tanks. No fining or filtration before bottling.

Temperature:

Serve between 14 and 16°C in a large glass.

Food and wine pairing:

Roast guinea fowl with porcini mushrooms, tournedos of beef with green pepper, herb-crusted shoulder of lamb, roast duck aiguillettes and beet confit with rosemary, mature Burgundy cheeses like that from Abbaye de Cîteaux.

Cellar aging:

From now until 2030 and beyond for enthusiasts.

An anchor in the elite world of Burgundy with global acclaim, Domaine Jean Grivot stands as a prestigious establishment. With a remarkable wine heritage, boasting no less than 12 premier crus and 3 grand crus, the Grivot family, led by Etienne and his children Mathilde and Hubert, produces masterful cuvées grounded in cool ripeness.


Their style is a clean, classic, and vibrant one, which in recent years has gained fleshier density, always accompanied by tailored aging, of which no more than a third is in new barrels.
