FANTASTIC EVENING WITH AUX BRULEES AND BACON

© François Tran, 14th November 2018

Life suddenly becomes worriless and free when you have Canadian bacon, steak, and a Grivot wine! Recently, at dinner at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, I tried Pinot Noir from Jean Grivot with these grilled delights. At first, I thought it would make more sense to pair wine with higher tannins with these heavy meats. But, as my dinner showed, that’s not necessarily a must.

To drink, we selected a 2008 Vosne-Romanée ‘Aux Brûlées’ from Domaine Jean Grivot. The Brûlées felt like it was in its perfect drinking window with still a few more years ahead to reach its optimum potential. We poured the wine after an hour of letting it breathe; we didn’t decant it.

One of Wolfgang's signature dishes is their sizzling Canadian bacon. The edge and surface is crispy, the meat is nicely tender, and the smoky aroma is captivating. There is this wonderful sizzling sound as you cut into it too. How was the Canadian bacon with the Brûlées? The salty flavour left on my palate after the bacon was instantly quenched. And the wine enhanced the flavour of the bacon too. The wine was fresh, vibrant, and elegant with silky tannins. It showed a good emphasis on red currants and cherries, with a bit of jam and a long finish. A real treat!

Domaine Jean Grivot owns 0.26 ha of ‘Aux Brûlées’; it was planted in 1969 and is the warmest 1er Cru terroir in Vosne-Romanée. This vineyard is also known to be one of the top 1er Crus in Vosne-Romanée. The high-level of quality of the vineyard is reflected in the meticulous work from this domaine. Harvest is done by hand, and the grapes are sorted on the sorting tables to keep the very best. Bunches are 95% destemmed. Year-round manual work is carried out in the vineyards: debudding in spring, removing side-shoots, and performing effeuillage and vendange verte in summer. Their aim at Domaine Jean Grivot is to produce low yield, balanced and vibrant wines. Maceration takes a week at around 12 to 15 degrees and fermentation lasts 21 days. Then, the wine is transferred to casks. The wine is matured in 60% new oak barrels for eighteen months. Domaine Jean Grivot’s wine is good value for the high level of quality you experience in the glass. For the past twenty-five years Étienne has spearheaded constant advancement in the vineyards giving intense care and attention to the soils. Now his children, Mathilde and Hubert are taking an active part in the domaine’s activities and continue to adhere to and promote top quality standards.

Let us know if you’re keen to try one of the vintages we have in stock of this jewel from Domaine Jean Grivot. Or if you’d rather try another wine from their portfolio, we’re happy to help in that selection too. These are well-made and versatile wines – even delicious with Canadian bacon and steak.
