Punchy, vibrant perfumes of ripe blackberries and raspberries show on the nose. The mouth is both rich and long, with bright red, powerful and palate-coating black cherry flavors. These older vines grow on chalky, clay-based soils right next to leading premier cru vineyards to the north of Givry proper. Expressive and concentrated with a delightful spicy finish.
Givry, a region in the Cote Chalonnais just south of Cote d'Or is known for reds. This wine is an excellent example of what kind of value you can get in Burgundy. Delicious wild berry fruits, bright acid, a smoky undertone and soft tannins make this wine a perfect fall selection. I'd pair it with anything that has mushrooms, chicken, salmon or a duck with a fruit sauce. Great finish, too.
