Matured in 30% new wood, it's a fine, elegant, textured rendition of the terroir with impressive zip and palate length, silky tannins and a hint of ageworthy noble reduction.

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy, November 2019
(93-96 points) Ripe red purple colour, the nose hardly speaking yet. This is a big boy but in balance, with a sweet dark fruit, not quite sure if it goes all the way through. Quiet today but with lots of potential.

Gaston Grivot acquired 4.6 acres of Clos de Vougeot in 1919, his parcel reaching from the middle of the vineyard down to the lower wall. Mathilde Grivot, his great-granddaughter, made this 2018, having taken over from her...   Gaston Grivot acquired 4.6 acres of Clos de Vougeot in 1919, his parcel reaching from the middle of the vineyard down to the lower wall. Mathilde Grivot, his great-granddaughter, made this 2018, having taken over from her parents the year before. If this wine is any indication of her talents as a vigneron, she is a young Burgundian to watch. The fruit has an earthy complexity that resonates like atonal church music, or, in fruit terms, sour cherries, ripe cherry tomatoes and fleshy black cherries layered without sweetness. It’s tense, even as it’s plump and delicious. Hard to resist.

Burghound, January 2021
A beautifully layered nose reluctantly offers up a pretty if brooding array of plum, spice, game, earth and soft oak nuances. The supple yet punchy and overtly powerful broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent density...   A beautifully layered nose reluctantly offers up a pretty if brooding array of plum, spice, game, earth and soft oak nuances. The supple yet punchy and overtly powerful broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent density while delivering first-rate persistence on the sappy finish that really firms up as it sits on the palate. Impressive, ageworthy and a bit less austere at this early stage than usual.
