The producer

This historic domaine hails back to 1875 and has owned the monopole vineyard of Clos des Perrieres sine 1877. The Bardet family – Albert Grivault’s grandchildren – now own and run the estate and are one of the largest owners of the Les Perrieres vineyard, with 1.55 hectares - this is the jewel in the Bardet family’s crown.

Domaine Albert Grivault today covers 6 hectares, with roughly five in white wine and one in red wine. The red is a Pommard, and all the white wines come from Meursault, including Clos des Perrieres, Perrieres and Charmes. In fact, in 1904, Albert Grivault famously donated the Meursault Charmes vineyard to the Hospices de Beaune, and to this day this wine still auctioned as Cuvee Albert Grivault every year. The white wines see just under a year of maturing in oak, of which 20% is new for the Premier Crus.

The wine

Grivault owns 1.55 hectares of land in the exceptional Perrieres premier cru. The soil is rich in limestone and rocks which lends a unique minerality and tension to the wine. Wines are fermented and following aged in oak barrels, with around 20% new oak used. Grivault’s Perrieres is amongst the weightiest and most velvety of Meursaults yet balanced by the fine mineral freshness and structure, and a vibrant fruit driven core.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
