The name "Griotte" may recall the Morello cherry (a sort of wild or sour cherry used in cooking or preserves), which is part of the aromas often found in the nose of this wine. But in fact, "Griotte" comes from "Criots" (as in Criots-Batard-Montrachet) which has the same origin as the word "craie" (chalk in French). An interesting case where etymology sheds light on the geology!


"Tasting Griotte-Chambertin is always cause for reflexion: the aromas are complex and subtle, with hints of cherry liqueur, preserved cherry, fine leather, nutmeg. When the wine matures, there are hints of truffle and venison. The flavours are also arresting in their own way and the tannins, although present, are never aggressive or coarse. Long and persistent on the palate, with a glorious aftertaste".

Véronique Boss-Drouhin
