Domaine Joblot Givry 1er Cru Servoisine 2018
Domaine Joblot is credited by many for putting Givry on the Burgundy map. Today, second generation Juliette Joblot farms 13.5 hectares planted in the unique Givry ampitheatre which shelters the village from westerly winds. The rocky, limestone soils give a chiseled minerality to the wines. While each parcel is vinified separately, each cuvée undergoes natural fermentation in the same manner so that the character of the individual terroirs come through. The Servoisine is powerful and elegant with silky tannins.
WA91-93: Aromas of rich dark fruits, spices and baking chocolate introduce the 2018 Givry 1er Cru Servoisine, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and gourmand wine that's ample and nicely concentrated, with an elegant chassis of powdery tannin. From a celebrated clay-rich climat, it's a promising wine.
BH90-93: Once again there is both good freshness and ripeness to the layered aromas of both red and dark currant along with plenty of earth and spice wisps. There is even better depth to the equally concentrated middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the firm, serious and impressively complex finish. This is really quite good.
