Givry 1er Cru Clos du Cellier aux Moines Joblot Information
About the domain
The star domain of the Givry appellation, the Joblot domain stands out with the pureness of its fruits: wines with fullness and charm, made by Juliette Joblot. The style of wines is based on elegance, fruitiness, fleshiness and texture. A quality that is accomplished through rigour and high standards: the density of plantation is very high (11,000 vine plants/ha), low yields, de-stemming, natural yeasts. The date of harvest is not decided through the levels of sugar, but through the acidic balance of the grapes, which avoids over maturing and gives the wine a fruity freshness. The same attention is given for all of the wines, whether they are village or premiers crus. When it comes to cellaring, although the proportion of new wood is quite high, it always produces good results.The domain counts nearly 14 hectares, most of which is planted with Pinot Noir. The range has eight wines, all of them Givry appellations.
