Griotte comes from the word “ruotte”, which in Burgundian dialect means stream. An apt name as a spring emerges at the top of the plot, irrigating the soil of the vines. This is one of the smallest production areas for Grand Cru – just 2.5 hectares. We are the largest producer of this appellation, working over 1 hectare, as well as purchasing grapes. This is an extremely rare wine and the pride of our winery.
The wines are generous, silky, and full-bodied. They can be drunk relatively young but can also be aged for many years, depending on the vintage. The characteristic aroma is redcurrant rather than cherry.
A fine Bresse chicken is the ideal companion for a Griotte wine… their union will be perfect!
