Some rare and highly rated Jean Grivot and exceptional prices!

Yet another Spectacular 2015 Grand Cru offering, yet again at the lowest price in the country!

2015 Jean Grivot Echezeaux Grand Cru....$333.99
Next lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $350 and then $400
Medium red; less dark and saturated than the Clos Vougeot. Deeply pitched but highly nuanced aromas and flavors of black cherry, red licorice, dried rose petal, tobacco, spices and musky minerality. Plush, sweet, silky wine with uncommon depth; hugely rich but not heavy, this voluptuous wine expands to fill the mouth. The explosively long finish features utterly noble tannins. Did I mention that this sophisticated, fresh wine boasts a texture of liquid velvet?

Also from Jean Grivot
2015 Jean Grivot Clos Vougeot $249.99
Next lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $265 and then $289.99
The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a detailed, precise bouquet, very pure with ripe dark cherries, kirsch, orange sorbet and subtle graphite aromas. It is one of the classiest that you will come across from this ancient vineyard this year. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin that feel a little fuller and suppler than the premier cru Vosne-Romanées. Grippy in the mouth with an effervescent finish, this is a long-term Clos de Vougeot that will age effortlessly over 20-30 years.
