The Ragot family already had a vineyard in Mercurey in 1760 and a century later Louis Ragot created his wine domaine in Givry. Since 2008, Nicolas Ragot has been in charge of the family domaine where he has worked since 2002. The vineyard extends over 9 hectares within the Givry appellation (6.5ha of Pinot Noir, 2 of Chardonnay and the rest in Aligoté), with a third of premier crus. This domaine produces a consistent range of wines with fine cuvées and provides good value for money. (It is regularly selected by the Revue du Vin de France's best reasonably priced wine Guide ).
About the cuvée
Givry Premier Cru Clos Jus is produced from a parcel planted around fifteen years ago on red soil and Upper Oxfordian limestone rock, fully east-facing. It features complex, spicy, smoky and gamey notes. On the palate, it is generous and full-bodied.
