Givry 1er Cru 'La Grande Berge' 2017, Domaine Ragot, France
Regular price £33.00
This premier cru is located in the south of the Givry. The Ragots have five parcels here, totalling 2.14 hectares, varying between 15, 30 and 50 years of age. Grande Berge produces wines that are more known for their subtlety and finesse than for their power. Harvest is by hand, the grapes are de-stemmed and yeasts are indigenous. Ageing takes place in oak (30% new) for between 12 and 15 months. Worth decanting for 30 mins or so, to coax the lovely aromas to the fore. Lots of cherry and strawberry fruit, a vanilla tone and some earthiness, too.
