Year after year the Domaine Robert Groffier produces wines that rank with the greatest in Burgundy. Not only are they elegant, rich and concentrated, but each "cru" truly reflects its respective "terroir". A high proportion of old vines, ... 40 years and more, as well as prime locations and constant attention to the vines during the growing season, all contribute to the greatness of the Groffier estate.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Haut-Doix from Nicolas Groffier has a disjointed nose that feels rather under-ripe, more vegetal than leafy. The palate is much more promising. Sure, it is on the lean side at first, but it sorts itself out in the glass and puts on the weight and fleshy it needs. There is an elegance to this Hauts Doix, though I think Nicolas will conjure much better examples in future years.
