Givry 1er Cru Bois Chevaux Rouge 2016, Domaine Joblot

Producer Note

One of the greatest producers in Southern Burgundy, the Joblot family has been producing fine wines for over four generations. They own 14 hectares of vineyard in four red and two white Premier Cru areas in Givry and lay great emphasis on vineyard management with small yields. Their total production is 6,000 cases per annum. The wines are vinified with a high proportion of new barriques resulting in powerful but elegant wines of top class quality. These sought after wines have limited availability.

Vintage

2016 was a vintage which benefited from a mild spring, providing optimal conditions for flowering. The vintage was not hampered by any episodes of hail or frost. The summer was characterised by hot days and cool temperatures at night, encouraging a full maturation of the berries and resulting in a classic Burgundy vintage. Harvest took place mid-September.

Vineyard

The grapes come from the Premier Cru named plot, or ‘lieu dit’ of Bois Chevaux, in Givry. The soils are limestone and are lightly harrowed rather than ploughed to avoid soil erosion. The vines are pruned to the single cane Guyot method and are planted at a density of 8,000 per hectare; they are low yielding, producing small, concentrated flavoursome berries. The vineyards are cultivated according to a philosophy of minimum intervention, in order to retain the essence of the terroir.

Winemaking

Fermentation took place in vat. The wine was then matured in Allier oak barrels (50% new, 50% second passage) for 12 months, followed by four months in bottle prior to release.

Tasting Note

The nose is full of red berry, black cherry and violets. On the palate, the fruit is remarkably precise and nicely taut. This finish is clean with lots of power without too much weight. Good minerality, length, a classic, classy Pinot Noir.

Serving Suggestion

At 15°C-16°C with terrines, cold meats, grilled and roast meats, poultry and firm cheese.
