  • 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. The reds represent 80% of the appellation. They are fruit-forward, well-structured with finesse. Warm, lively and giving, they are often compared to wines from Volnay.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    The Givry 2011 is of a gorgeous rubis colour. On the nose, red fruit notes subtly appear. Blackcurrant aromas go perfectly well with redcurrant notes. Well-balanced on the mouth, the palate discovers cherry notes and tannin flavors.
  • Food Pairing
    Poached-eggs in wine sauce - duck breast - Brillat-Savarin cheese

Press review
    • Givry rouge 2014 - Tom Cannavan's - August 2015 - 87/100

      Relatively closed at this stage, with not a lot of fruit showing aromatically, but then it does open on the palate with juicy black fruits and a fairly liquoricy and dry finish. (UK)

    • Givry 2008 - The Guernsey Press & Star - February 2011 - "Elegant and Smooth"This elegant, smooth pinot noir comes from the Chalonnaise area of southern Burgundy and has a light, ruby colour with an intense, juicy red berry fruit on the palate, balanced with hints of oak and soft tannins. Good with cold cured meats, pate or loin of pork.
    • Givry 2007 - The Scotsman - June 2009 - 14/20Very light, gentle, elegant.
    • Givry 2007 - Wine Gang - September 2009 - 88/100With fragrant redcurrant and cherry aromas and an attractive spicy-earthy-nutty character. This Pinot Noir could only come from Burgundy.
