Givry 1er cru rouge - Domaine Steinmaier
The grapes are planted on calcareous soil. The subsoil is composed mainly of limestone. The Givry reds come from the Pinot Noir grape. Located on the Côte Chalonnaise, south of Burgundy, the Givry region produces primarily red wines. The parcels face from east to southeast, and range from 240 to 280 meters high.
The wine is aged in oak barrels.
With a fine purple colour, this wine opens on aromas which are typical of Pinot Noir (blackcurrant, morello cherry and leather). It is persistent and balanced. The finesse of these tannins provides a wonderful aromatic complexity. Very fine density.
Fine charcuteries, fibrous meats or stewed poultry are the perfect accompaniment for this wine. On the more exotic side but still appropriate: kebabs, keftas and eggrolls. Or simply serve with soft crust cheeses such as Camembert, Reblochon, and Brie.
Best consumed within six or seven years following harvest. Serving temperature between 16 and 18°C.
Available in bottle.
