The Grivot family has kept winemaking in the family since the French Revolution. Currently, Mathilde Grivot has taken over from her father, Etienne, bringing a sense of passion and zest to her work. While many winemaking families in Burgundy like to keep tradition alive, the Grivot family have been excited for the changes that Mathilde has brought to the table. Their plots are among the most enviable in the Cote de Nuit region with their home base in the village of Vosne Romanee. Most of their holdings are either Grand Cru or Premier Cru. The family continues to be among the best in Burgundy today.
Echézeaux grand cru is a large vineyard of 38 hectares divided into 11 individual climats. Grivot’s parcel is in the climat of Les Cruots and lies at the southern end of Echézeaux near the premier cru of Les Suchots. A good Echézeaux should have rich fruit, considerable earthiness, and be very complete on the palate.
