Givry Champ La Dame 2019
|Grapes: Pinot Noir|
Situation: right at the heart of the Givry appellation (Côte Chalonnaise)
Savoir-faire: hand-picked Pinot Noir grapes. Traditional vinification with manual cap-puncheing. Three weeks of cuvaison. Gravity cellared for ageing in 228 litres oak barrels (20% new oak)
Nose: strawberry, blackcurrant. Vibrant Pinot Noir typicity
Mouth: tanins are perceptible but remain soft and mingle with a juicy texture. Dominant fruits evolve towards liquorice and violet notes.
Cured cold meats, mushroom and parmigiano pie, a good cheese board.
Givry is an appellation worth (re)discovering that offers excellent wines at a very reasonable price.
A pleasure wine perfectly crafted, with typical Pinot Noir notes (raspberry, blackcurrant) and a nice soft mouth structure
