Domaine Danjean-Berthoux - Givry, La Plante, Premier Cru, Burgundy (2017)
Tart and ripe red and blue berries, sweet cream, lavender and thyme. Scorched earth and graphite, vibrant acidity, fine, grippy tannins. 2017 was an excellent vintage in Givry.
The vinification took place in concrete neutral tanks with a cold 3 to 4 days pre-fermentation maceration. 100% destemmed. Aged in barrel, 35% new. Finally, the wines are not fined but undergo a light filtration.
After assuming control of the family estate 20 years ago, Pascal Danjean decided to bottle wines for the domaine with the first vintage in 1993. Primarily located in 1er Cru vineyards in the small village of Givry, the wines are never fined or filtered resulting in soft, supple mouthfuls and allowing the terroir to shine. Early drinkability, lower prices and high level of consistency are a few reasons why we love the Côte Chalonnaise!!! Danjean-Berthoux is an amazing example of what top growers are achieving in this up and coming region of Burgundy.
Vegan and sustainably farmed. The vines are farmed conventionally under what might be called “lutte raisonnée”. Grass is kept in a few parcels and soils are sometimes ploughed. Light filtration only.
