Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy, November 2019

(95- 97 points) Fine deep purple. More perfumed than the Clos Vougeot, with a wealth of really ripe dark raspberry fruit on the palate, which holds together really well, no heat, no spoilage just amazing length...

Decanter, October 2019

Most of the domaine's Echézeaux hails from Les Rouges du Bas, with 30% from a second parcel in Les Vignes Blanches. Made with grapes described as 'caviar' by Mathilde Grivot, this old-vine cuvée is indeed superb in 2018...

Burghound, January 2021

A spicier nose flashes equally good complexity but the aromatic composition is different as here the fruit is both darker and more floral-inflected. The rich, palate drenching and very suave, indeed even velvety, flavors...

Vinous, November 2022

The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru has an attractive nose of brambly red fruit, orange rind, sous-bois and a touch of wilted rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with furry tannins, plenty of dusky red berry fruit with white...

Wine & Spirits, June 2021

Mathilde Grivot’s family owns vines in Les Cruots, at the south reaches of Echezeaux, neighboring Les Suchots. Those vines provided a markedly fruity Echezeaux in 2018, with persistent notes of sour plum and red cherry...

The 2018 Domaine Jean Grivot Echezeaux is a distinguished Pinot Noir hailing from the esteemed Burgundy region of France, specifically the Cote de Nuits sub-region. This wine is a product of the respected Domaine Jean Grivot and is sealed with a traditional cork closure. With an alcohol content of 14.0%, this red wine promises a rich and rewarding experience for Pinot Noir enthusiasts.

The 2018 vintage has garnered notable praise from various esteemed reviewers. Neal Martin of Vinous awarded it 94 points, highlighting its "attractive nose of brambly red fruit, orange rind, sous-bois, and a touch of wilted rose petal." Martin notes the wine's medium body, "furry tannins," and "dusky red berry fruit with white pepper and sage." He suggests that while it may seem a bit rustic towards the finish, it gains coherence with aeration and recommends a couple of years of further bottle aging for optimal enjoyment.

Burghound also gave the wine 94 points, praising its "spicier nose" and the "rich, palate-drenching and very suave, indeed even velvety, flavors." The reviewer commends the "dusty and exceptionally long if mildly warm finish" and notes a subtle touch of wood. This wine, according to Burghound, is poised to reward those who cellar it for 15 plus years.

Decanter rated this vintage highly at 96 points, describing it as "superb" with "plenty of structure and depth, sappy acidity, graceful, caressing tannins, subtle wild strawberry fruit, and a lingering palate." This review underscores the wine's complexity and recommends a drinking window from 2024 to 2035.

Wine & Spirits provided a score of 93 points, emphasizing the wine's "markedly fruity" character with "persistent notes of sour plum and red cherry, fig, and star anise." The tannins are noted to create a "mouthwatering impression," suggesting the wine will benefit from at least ten years of aging.

The highest praise comes from Jasper Morris of Inside Burgundy, who awarded the wine an impressive 97 points. Morris commends its "fine deep purple" color and "wealth of really ripe dark raspberry fruit on the palate," which he notes has "amazing length" without any heat or spoilage.

Overall, the 2018 Domaine Jean Grivot Echezeaux is a meticulously crafted Pinot Noir that promises to develop beautifully with time, offering a complex and rewarding sensory experience.
