Red wine. Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The 2017 Givry “à Vigne Rouge” premier cru bottling from Domaine des Moirots is a relative newcomer in their lineup, as they purchased and planted this parcel seven years ago. It was planted with a selection massale of pinot fine vines, which produce very small berries. The wine is destemmed, given a short cold soak, fermented in cement and then aged in casks for one year, with sixty percent being new oak and the other forty percent one wine barrels. The 2017 Vigne Rouge delivers a superb bouquet of red and black cherries, a bit of raw cocoa, grilled meats, a lovely base of dark soil tones, cedary oak and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and nicely soil-driven, with a good core of fruit, lovely focus and balance, fine-grained tannins and a long, complex and very classy finish. This is an excellent wine and carries its new wood seamlessly. 2025- 2050." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
