REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte Chalonnaise, Givry, La Grande Berge

Givry, the appellation, is in the Côte Chalonnaise region and it includes the communes of Givry, Dracy-le-Fort and Jambles. The appellation is four miles long and two miles wide and has 665 acres of vineyards, of which 250 acres are Premier Cru. Altogether there are 27 Premier Cru vineyards, including several monopoles. There are no Grand Crus. The remaining vineyard acreage is classified as Givry village. Though Givry produces both red and white wines, 80% of the wine produced is Pinot Noir. Some 1.7 million bottles of Givry appellation wines are produced annually. Clive Coates has noted that the soil of Givry is a mix of the marl and chalky limestone of northern Burgundy and the richer, sandier limestone of the Mâconnais to the south. Coates added: “The red wines of Givry can be the most charming and the most stylish of the Côte Chalonnaise, and in structure, they are midway between those of Rully and Mercurey.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
