1996 Givry " Clos De Mortières " Charles De Vallière.
Vintage Score 1996 Burgundy Red - 17/20.
Givry is primarily a red wine made from Pinot Noir grapes. To the eye it presents a brilliant carmine or crimson colour set off by purplish highlights.
Its bouquet generally evokes violets, strawberries, and blackberries with variants which include liquorices, game, and sometimes spice (cloves). It is quite tannic in its early youth but after 3 to 5 years in the bottle it becomes suppler and fuller. It boasts a firm structure.
This Côte Chalonnaise wines was the favorite of the French King Henri IV (1553-1610). It is produced in the communes of Givry (with its hamlets Poncey, Cortiambles and Russilly), Dracy-le-Fort, and Jambles – a corner of Paradise for wine-growing, surrounding what has been a fortified location since the Middle Ages. Its AOC dates from 1946. As Philippe Sollers wrote in his autobiography “Being born into a culture of French wine is a deeply fortifying and sobering experience that becomes a part of you. As a child, one does not even need to read Rabelais - his words live and speak all around”.
Brown soils derived from the breakdown of Oxfordian Jurassic limestones and clayey-limestones. Most of the vines are planted facing East-South-East or due South at altitudes between 240 and 280 metres, or slightly higher in the case of the Climat named Les Bois Chevaux.
Vintage description 1996 Burgundy:
This great vintage is also characterised by a more abundant harvest than the last few years. Thanks to the hot, dry weather, flowering at the beginning of June was very quick. The contrasting weather in the summer caused a few worries as to how well the grapes would ripen. Fortunately September was exceptionally dry and bright which brought on an early and sunny harvest. The red wines have a lovely pronounced colour. The nose is concentrated and very fruity. The wines are well-structured on the palate with fine tannins. The wine's fruit and balance make it very harmonious already.
