Groffier is one of our absolute favourite in Burgundy and they probably makes the best entry bourgogne rouge. We have not yet succeeded in visitng them, but hopefully later this Autumn. The underline “pinot noir” is an export adaptation or maybe it is just cynical. Anyway, this wine is in fact made up of grapes from old vines from Morey-St-Denis and Vougeot, which is unusual at this price level. Their flagship Burgundy wine, the amazing Amoureuses from 2008 and 2009 were tasted here.
Very complex and beautiful minerals in here as well as very fresh, opulent flowers. Great fresh, perfume.
On the palate, cool, extremely pure, clean and fresh fruit impresses us. Some anise seeds. complex minerals, underbrush and earthy notes that wraps the fruit. Orange-peel and some herbs. Texture is fantastic for a village wine and so is its precision.
Quite persistent, pretty and elegant wine width some depth, but foremost an unexpected precision framed by very silky tannins. Simply a steel considering its price tag.
