- Terroir : "The Côte Chalonnaise, in Saône et Loire, continues the Côte d'Or southward from the Côte de Beaune to the north of the Mâconnais hills. Givry, Henry IV's favourite Burgundy wine, is produced in an area covering the communes of Givry Poncey, Cortiambles, Russilly, Dracy-le-Fort and Jambles. A veritable paradise for wines, it obtained its appellation in 1946. Most of the vines face east by south-east or south, between 240 and 280 metres in altitude."
- Vinification & Elevage : "These grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our white wines, the grapes arrive whole at our pneumatic wine press. Slow gentle pressing allows the juices to be extracted in the best possible conditions. These juices are then placed in a settling vat and cooled to 8° for 24 hours to clarify them. Lastly, they are placed directly in oak barrels (10% of which are new) for alcoholic fermentation where they will develop silky aromas over 10 months."
- Commentaries by our oenologist : Full-bodied and smooth, our Givry has a superb texture, and notes of peaches and lemons.
- Food pairing : This Givry is perfect with all types of fish and seafood: serve it with a seafood platter of oysters, sea-urchins, shrimp, crab, whelks and clams.
