Product description

Good freshness and verve to this wine. A bright and cool nose mixes a variety of red and blue berry fruit aromas plus notes of spice, earth and underbrush. -Brothers Jean-Marc and Vincent Joblot are famed in the Côte Chalonnaise appellation of Givry. The natural amphitheater of Givry uniquely protects from westerly winds. They farm 14 hectares sustainably, along with Jean-Marc's daughter Juliette, and practice severe de-budding and green harvesting. Unlike many vignerons who judge the ripeness of their grapes on brix, the Joblots base their decision on acidity levels. Sorting occurs in the vineyards, and they are known to drop up to 40 % of a vintage if it fails to meet their standards. “An exceptionally fresh, bright and cool nose mixes a variety of red and blue berry fruit aromas plus notes of spice, earth and underbrush. The very rich, delicious and mouth coating flavors benefit substantially from the tannin-buffering effects of the abundant dry extract that confers a seductive character upon the complex, balanced and seriously long finish. This precise and vibrant effort is a wine of impressive harmony. Outstanding.”
