Wine: Standard bearer of the house style, the Givry Premier Cru Clos Jus 2009 is a real indulgence. The Pinot Noir leaps on the palate in primary tones with candor and precision. Fresh and smooth on the palate. In this particularly expressive vintage, the aromatic palette is dominated by sweet, creamy cherry. It makes this wine a real treat, a thirst quencher.

The wines from Domaine Jean Tatraux have long been considered as being some of the best made in the Côte Chalonnaise. These are real fruity wines, the antitheses of constructed or "bodybuilt" wines: "made up wines to make you dream". Here we have a pure wine maker product, a sincere and fetching expression of a Burgundy.
