Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Mix of limestone and clay
Site : Givry is one of the most famous village in the heart of Côte Chalonnaise in the Southern part of Burgundy
The Vintage 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks during 13 months.
Tasting : Deep ruby colour. Fragrances of violet mixed with refreshing aromas of ripe red berries mixed with liquorice. Well-crafted and well-structured. Sappy with elegant tannins. Refreshing and fruity aftertaste.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meats, pâté, pie, grilled or roasted meat, fowls and "fromages à pâte pressée".
