Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its dark garnet color offers a nose of cherry syrup and juniper notes. On the palate, this wine presents a good balance, rather vinous with tannins rather tight.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Truncated-cone tanks are sometimes favored for the fermentation. Those tanks have a conical shape that allows a greater thermal inertia for a slower fermentation.
Domain and appellation
Established in some of the most prestigious Burgundy terroirs, the Domaine Faiveley only produces Grands Crus, 1er Crus, and Villages’ appellations since 1825.
- Terroir: The Faiveley vineyards are scattered all across Burgundy. The Givry Champ-Lalot spreads across 3 hectares and carries the Village appellation. The vineyard lays on limestone soils with pinot noir for only grape variety.
- Viticulture: From the winter pruning to the green harvests in summer, much attention is given to the vineyard. The harvests are hand-picked in September on a 10-day period.
- Vinification: The cold pre-fermentation is followed by a long fermentation and maceration in truncated-cone tanks in the Mercurey vat rooms. The Givry Champ-Lalot ages for 20% in oak barrels for 12 months.
