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.

2017 PASSETOUTGRAIN (GRFF04217A)
Along with Lafarge, the domaine makes the best Passetoutgrain we know. It has 25% Gamay, and the fruit is fresh, ripe and brambly, driving through to a long fine finish. For Nicolas, it is the equivalent of having a beer - delicious, uncomplicated and refreshing.

2017 BOURGOGNE ROUGE (GRFF06217A)
From two parcels, one under the Clos Vougeot, the other on the Gevrey side of Morey. The fruit is spicy, black and sweet, and there is lovely density and roundness, along with definition and energy.

2017 GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN Les Seuvr?es (GRFF10217A)
Vines just under Mazoy'res-Chambertin, where lighter, red clay soils mixed with sand give a pure angular, mineral-driven wine. But there is no shortage of fruit: generous black cherry and blackberry mingle with rounded fine tannins, and it tapers to a juicy finish.

2017 CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY 1er cru Les Hauts Doix (GRFF20217A)
50% whole bunch fermentation gives lifted, raspberry fruit that shades to darker black cherry as the wine opens. It is rich and sweet, but there is a silky quality too, and the tannins are ripe and fresh.

2017 CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY 1er cru Les Sentiers (GRFF22217A)
Old vines gave very small berries, so here none of the grapes were destemmed. Sentiers gives a stricter, leaner wine of great finesse; there is sour cherry fruit, bright acidity and powerful ripe tannins, and the wine given definition by a cool mineral seam that lasts all the way to the long finish. It will reward cellaring.

2017 CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY 1er cru Les Amoureuses (GRFF26217A)
Groffier is the largest holder of Amoureuses, with 1.2 hectares, and the style is usually different to that of most other growers, showing more weight and power. In 2017 the wine is more in line with the vineyard's reputation: it is elegant and ethereal, with silky sweet fruit, spicy notes, vanishingly fine tannins and a long salty mineral finish.
