Givry 1er Cru Mademoiselle 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

Givry is a small village in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise, a sub-region in the south of Burgundy. The cuvée Mademoiselle is a blend of fruit from two Premier Cru sites. The first site is the walled vineyard of Clos de la Servoisine, where old Chardonnay vines are grown in limestone soils; and the second is the named plot of ‘En Veau’, where the fruit is harvested from the older vines which are grown in clay soils. In both plots the Guyot trained vines are low yielding, producing small, concentrated berries. The vines are cultivated according to a philosophy of minimum intervention; taking a natural and patient approach, which involves meticulous attention in the vineyard, but with a light touch, in order to retain the essence of the terroir.

Winemaking

Fermentation took place in French oak barrels, of which 60% were new and 40% were one year old. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, resulting in a softer, rounder mouthfeel. The wine was aged for one year in barrels from the Allier forests. Blending took place following the maturation period and the wine was lightly filtered prior to being bottled.

Tasting Note

Elegant and poised, this stunning wine shows complex aromas of yellow stone fruits and citrus notes layered with delicate floral nuances. Harmoniously balanced, it has a generous texture on the palate and a wonderful tension on the finish.

Serving Suggestion

Perfect match with poultry, a pan-fried Dover sole or cheese.
