Description
  • The village of Givry gives its name to one of the 5 appellations of the Côte Chalonnaise. Already recognized in the middle-ages and also appreciated by Henry IV, it wasn't until 1946 that Givry was elevated to "AOC" status in recognition of the consistent quality of its wines. It is on these east-facing limestone slopes that one can still find high quality Burgundies such as this white Givry.
