The Grivot family originally came from the Jura region in the north-east of France. They came to Burgundy at the end of the 18th century and grew vines in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Corgoloin and the Hautes CÃ´tes. Joseph Grivot founded a wine company in Vosne-RomanÃ©e, but it was his son Gaston who developed the domaine. In 1919 Gaston sold vines in the lesser areas to buy a large parcel of the grand cru Clos de Vougeot. You can still see the gate he built today. He was one of the first oenologists to graduate from Dijon University in the 1920s, followed by his son, Jean, a few years later. Together they made the Grivot name famous in the wine world. Like his father, Jean acquired a parcel of grand cru land, 31 ares of Richebourg, in 1984 and was succeeded by his son Etienne in 1987.
Etienne Grivot studied viti- and viniculture in Beaune and did work experience in California and elsewhere in France. This experience made him feel that the domaine's wines could be improved. It was important to go back to basics and restore the soil's natural balance, study yields, harvesting dates, pre-fermention maceration, fermentation temperatures, the use of oak,â€¦that is do everything possible to make pleasurable, fine, rich, full wines for long-term ageing which reflect Burgundy's unique terroir.
