In the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise, the village of Givry is well-known for its
red wines which are often compared to the wines of Mercurey.
Total Surface Area: 219 ha (for red wines)
Exposition: South, South-East
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Domaine Faiveley surface area: 3 ha 98 a 80 ca - [9.85 Acres]
Years the vines were planted: 1975, 1979, 1980, 1983
Average annual production: 23 900 bottles
To maintain all their freshness and quality, the grapes are pressed and vinified on site in Mercurey. The wine is then taken to Nuits-Saint-Georges, where it is matured in part in oak barrels for 12 to 14 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions.
The barrels, which come from high-quality barrel makers, have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.
Our Tasting Notes:
A delicate nose with floral or springtime scents. This wine is pleasing and balanced on the palate, respecting the softness of the aromas on the nose. Givry blends freshness and fruitiness giving delicateness and finesse.
Serve at: 14°C
Serve with: Cold Meats, Pâté en Croûte, Liver Pâté, Roast Pork
Cellaring Potential: 4 to 7 years
The 2008 vintage gives us a Givry "Champ-Lalot" which is scarlet, clear and brilliant. The nose is a cocktail of flowers and acidic red fruits. The same aromas continue on the palate with a fresh acidic finish. This is a fine wine for its appellation and its vintage.
