Perfectly mastered from start to finish, this Givry 1st Cru Clos Jus from the Laurent Mouton estate is one of the sure values of the givry Premier Cru appellation. Hand-picked, it will be fermented 12 to 18 days in controlled temperatures and daily scales.

Clos Jus is one of the most intense of givry's 1st Crus

With a beautiful density and beautiful frame, it keeps a fine and delicate side. At the aromatic level, the bouquet will be complex and rich: floral notes like violet, but also red and black fruits (strawberry, blackberry) and even spices.

The 2018 vintage, very balanced, is a clear success: halfway between 2009, very concentrated, and 2010, on the fruit, we are dealing here with a very beautiful harmony.

Givry

Wine Characteristics

Givry is primarily a red wine made from Pinot Noir grapes. To the eye it presents a brilliant carmine or crimson colour set off by purplish highlights.
Its bouquet generally evokes violets, strawberries, and blackberries with variants which include liquorices, game, and sometimes spice (cloves). It is quite tannic in its early youth but after 3 to 5 years in the bottle it becomes suppler and fuller. It boasts a firm structure.
White Givry (Chardonnay) is a bright, limpid pale gold. It is redolent of aromas of honey or lemon with notes of lime and lily, then dried fruits (often toasted) come to the fore after the wine has aged some years. The mouth is delicate, with a balance between mellowness and acidity which guarantees its keeping qualities as well as giving it good length.
 

Wine Steward’s Tip

Red: its firm structure hides a delicate aromatic register which clearly makes it a fine match for pâtés, pies, and terrines, as well as cured ham and fine charcuterie. However, its distinction and solid construction are calculated to please meat-lovers. Fibrous joints, beefsteak, braised veal, stewed poultry, or a roasted fattened hen from La Bresse will respond to its dense tannins.
It is equally well-matched with soft-centred cheeses: Camembert, Brie de Meaux, Reblochon.
Serving temperature: around 15 °C.


White: fish in light sauces, freshwater pike cooked with butter and white meats bring out its finest qualities. As far as cheeses are concerned, try pressed-curd cheeses such as Saint-Nectaire and Cantal.
Serving temperature: 11 to 13 °C.
 

Situation

This Côte Chalonnaise wines was the favorite of the French King Henri IV (1553-1610). It is produced in the communes of Givry (with its hamlets Poncey, Cortiambles and Russilly), Dracy-le-Fort, and Jambles – a corner of Paradise for wine-growing, surrounding what has been a fortified location since the Middle Ages. Its AOC dates from 1946. As Philippe Sollers wrote in his autobiography “Being born into a culture of French wine is a deeply fortifying and sobering experience that becomes a part of you. As a child, one does not even need to read Rabelais - his words live and speak all around”.

Terroirs

Brown soils derived from the breakdown of Oxfordian Jurassic limestones and clayey-limestones. Most of the vines are planted facing East-South-East or due South at altitudes between 240 and 280 metres, or slightly higher in the case of the Climat named Les Bois Chevaux.
