  • ALTRA BORGOGNA; 1/16/2016-6/6/2016: 25% legno nuovo per 12 mesi.
    Smalto per unghie, liquore di frutti maturi, sanguigno e ferroso. Il naso ha un accenno di terziarizzazione che ricorda quella del Sangiovese.
    In bocca è completamente diverso dagli altri Givry: ha la ferrosità, la materia e il tannino terroso di un Pommard. La bocca è graffiante, sapida, bucciosa e amarognola.
    Molto da pasto, ma per nulla pesante e trasuda pienezza e longevità.
    Buono e sodo.

  • Opened approximately 2 hours prior to serving. Quite closed initially, with some reduction present. The nose is all red fruit and whole-cluster spices at first, before giving way to forest floor and some oak. Good balance and typicity. Nice acidity keeps the raspberry/strawberry in check, and a little anise mixed with black pepper and baking spices add dimension. Not the most complex wine but very satisfying and a real pleasure to drink. A touch rough on the tannins but that could be due to the wines youth.

  • Drank this at Le Charsseur tonight with a group of wine enthusiasts.

    The first of three Burgundies for the night.
    This was a simple and straightforward Pinot Noir.
    Nothing interesting or surprises.

    Good for daily drinking or causal dinners.

  • Dark ruby with crimson hues, fresh lifted nose of black cherry and dried herbs.
    The palate is also fresh with good acidity, young with fruity notes, mix of black and red cherry with a hints of toasty oak. Long finish and soft tannins. Pretty approachable now.

  • Il présente son fond habituel de bonbon dur sur une acidité qui transporte bien sa fraicheur mentholée (typique de l'appellation) .
    Mais l'ensemble est plutôt court .
    A déjà été meilleur (notamment le 2007 et le 2008).
    Bon, mais ce n'est plus une aubaine.
