Etienne Marchand and his sister Marion are the seventh generation of this family to be involved in wine. They succeeded their father Jacques - one of the great characters of Burgundy. Etienne studied at the Lycée Viticole at Macon-Davayé, followed by a BTS in Wine Commerce at Thecoma in Paris and experience with vignerons in Oregon. Thanks to him, the estate has been given a new enthusiasm, adding modern working techniques whilst retaining the continuity of the collective knowledge and experience.
Located in Gevrey-Chambertin, Marchand-Grillot own an exciting range of vineyards. Their 9 hectares are spread across 47 different plots! In addition to Premier and Grand Cru holdings the domaine is one the few to bottle a selection of lieux-dits.

Gevrey-Chambertin En Songe 2019
Landed Price $117.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $87.95 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
Brilliant purple, the nose at first showed some varnished oak but that blew off, leaving tight lean, deep redcurrant and raspberry. There is a little extra weight here but not quite the same purity of fruit and balance. Not singing today. 88-90 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin En Creot 2019
Landed Price $128.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $96.50 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
Fine crimson-purple, medium depth. The fruit is a little more lifted here compared to En Songe. Very pleasing ripe raspberry, no more than medium bodied. Medium length and nicely balanced in a gentle key. 88-91 Points
Morey-St-Denis 2019
Landed Price $128.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $96.50 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
Fine mid purple, the nose is beautifully rumbustious, Startling striking fruit, nicely oaked, a mix of all the red fruits in succession, finishing more on bright cherry. Lovely fruit at the back of the palate. Absolutely delicious, quite primary, will keep well. 5 Star Wine! 91-94 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin Champerrier Vigne Centenaire 2019
Landed Price $161.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $121.50 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
2 barrels including some whole bunches and vinified without sulphur. Bright fresh purple, the bouquet is very restrained at the moment, Etienne doesn’t think it is tasting well. It is showing the wood a bit, and with a hint of volatility, but there is a considerable depth of flavour too. The odds are that this will wind up rather better later on, and this can be a spectacular cuvée here. So a grudging score for now, but to be re-evaluated later. 87-92 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru La Perriere 2019
Landed Price $178.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $133.95 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
Rich pure purple, ripe and heady but in balance and super-concentrated, with a density of dark fruit flavours, plums and dark raspberries, some oak from recent wood. Excellent length. 91-93 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle 2019
Landed Price $212.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $159.50 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
Deep dark purple, slight lack of freshness on the nose, but that soon blows off. Much riper fruit and drier tannins, this vineyard has been caught out a bit. 14.5% alcohol. Slight green apple finish. 87-90 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin 2018
Landed Price $114.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $85.50 (Save 25%)
The provenance of this wine is from several different parcels situated throughout the commune, mostly on the slope, and all facing east/south-east. The different parcels form a well-balanced cuvée with an average vine age of about 40 years which is why this wine was labelled Vieilles Vignes in the past.
Gevrey-Chambertin Au Velle 2018
Landed Price $117.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $87.95 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
The Marchand-Grillots were loquacious about the difference between Au Velle and En Songe. This vineyard sits just above the other but is picked a week later than En Songe because it is cooler and damper on red clay. There is a fault line in between the two. This is tighter in structure with a brisk red fruit, some firm tannins. I would separate them more by style than absolute quality. 90-93 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin En Jouise 2018
Landed Price $117.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $87.95 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
This vineyard has a similar terroir to the better known La Justices (En Jouise may have the same origin for its name), on silty gravels. Deepish purple. This has an agreeable savoury character alongside the fruit on the edge of raspberry and strawberry. A few tannins to finish, good length. A good start to the range of single vineyard Gevreys. 89-91 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin En Songe 2018
Landed Price $117.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $87.95 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
year old vines grown on a yellow marl soil. Deep rich dark purple with a rich sweet fruit, very succulent, some strawberry as well as raspberry. Attractive all the way through and probably accessible quite early. 91-93 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin En Creot 2018
Landed Price $128.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $96.50 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
Mineral, as the name suggests on the basis that it comes from the same origin as Cras. Dense black purple with a chipper limestone nose, very well balanced, very juicy on the cusp of red and black fruit, with a long juicy finish. Perhaps my favourite of the lieu-dit Gevreys, by a very short head from En Songe. 91-93 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin Champerrier Vigne Centenaire 2018
Landed Price $161.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $121.50 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
The vineyard dates back to 1903 and since 1975 they have stopped replacing missing vines, so as not to dilute the overall age. Vinification begins with whole bunches which are then removed and destemmed. Deep purple with a sensual velvet bouquet. This is really very lively, there might be a touch of volatile, but the qualities of the wine transcend this. Beautiful crisp length. The velvet touch returns at the finish of this special wine. 91-94 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle 2018
Landed Price $212.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $159.50 (Save 25%)
Jasper Morris MW
This vineyard is a family favourite. Etienne likes the character of the vineyard which steadfastly remains the same however they make the wine. Fine purple of some length. The fruit fills the mouth graciously with a little liquorice touch. This has more body compared to other Petite Chapelles of my acquaintance. 5 Star Wine! 93-95 Points
