Domaine Robert Groffier en primeur

Back to producer list Grower profile Another fine year from the eloquent Nicolas Groffier. He places the vintage close to 2005: to his mind the drought brought richness but also a touch of austerity. What is certain is that yields are much reduced due to the small amount of juice in the grapes. As ever, he believes the key to freshness is a late malolactic fermentation, so he chilled the wines down in order to delay it.

2018 Gevrey Chambertin Les Seuvrées (GRFF10218A)
Vines just under Mazoyères Chambertin, where lighter, red clay soils mixed with sand give a pure angular, mineral-driven wine. 1/3 whole-cluster vinification adds a vibrant, floral note to the rich black fruit, and there is an appealing purity and elegance to the long fresh finish.

2018 Chambolle Musigny 1er cru Les Sentiers (GRFF22218A)
Old vines produced very small berries, so nothing was destemmed here. Sentiers gives a strict, lean wine with firm tannins that indicate the need for some ageing. It certainly has the balance to do so: there is plenty of juicy, delicate red fruit and considerable density on the finish.
