Givry Louis Jadot 2011

A deliciously light and elegant Pinot Noir brimming with red fruit characters and smooth, supple tannins.

Givry vines are situated around the village of Givry, between Mercurey and Montagny, and around the three hamlets of Poncey, Cortiambles and Russilly. Its chalky brown soil, as a result of the weathering of Jurassic limestone, has given rise to a village appellation often compared to Volnay.

A short, mild and humid winter caused an early bud break of the vine. This was followed by relatively mild weather and the flowering period in June took place without any incident and with ideal conditions, so much so that it was 10 days earlier than 2010. This was impressive considering the challenge the vines had had recovering from the cold of December 2010.
