Joblot Givry 1er Cru L'Empreinte 2017
The wines of Givry have been heralded since the era of Henri IV, but ever since phylloxera hit the Côte Chalonnaise in the late 1800s, the appellation has been slow to recover. Domaine Joblot led the resurgence and is credited by many for putting Givry on the Burgundy map. Unlike many growers who determine the ripeness of their grapes based on sugar levels, the Joblots base their picking decisions on acidity levels. The resulting wines are plush, spicy and balanced with endless charm and finesse.
