Louis Jadot 2006 Givry

April 27, 2011

Givry is a village in the Cote Chalonnaise lying halfway between Montagny and Mercurey. Wines from these area can provide a good alternative to the lesser Cote D’Or villages. This one from Louis Jadot is a fine example.

Day1: Brilliant crimson, beautiful in the glass. Etereous, gentle bouquet in which the purity of the fruit mingles harmoniusly with the sweet spice character. Almost undetectable touches of smoke and leather add a dark element that enhances the raspberry and sour cherry perfumes. This is quite stylish.

Day2: The overall impression is still in line with that of the previous day. It actually kept very well. The red fruit aromas are still intact. Maybe a little bit darker in character, still clean on the nose and fresh and polished on the palate. Considering the price, definitely a rebuy.
