Geographical location of Domaine Jean Grivot
Domaine Jean Grivot is located in Vosne-Romanée, one of the most renowned terroirs of the Côte de Nuits. The soils of this terroir are predominantly marl and limestone. Their characteristic red color is due to the iron oxide content of the clay. With a total surface area of some 15 hectares, the domaine also owns plots in Vougeot, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Flagey-Échezeaux and Chambolle-Musigny. The majority of the estate's vines are Pinot Noir. Only a 20-acre plot in Vosne-Romanée is planted with Chardonnay.
Domaine Jean Grivot wines
Domaine Jean Grivot's vines are organically grown. The Pinot Noir grapes are completely destemmed before fermentation, which takes place naturally. The proportion of new barrels used to age the wine varies from 25% for Village appellation wines to 40% for Grands Crus. Bottling takes place on the estate.
