Givry 1er Cru Rouge 'l'Empreinte', Domaine Joblot

A complex, elegant and well-structured Burgundy showing expressive aromas of violets with ripe red fruits on the palate complemented by a vibrant minerality and culminating in a long and silky finish.
Juliette Joblot aims for an early harvest in order to retain the freshness and acidity in the grapes; each vintage it takes place before the autumn equinox. The grapes were harvested in three tonne bins, pressed in a horizontal press and racked. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures with an automatic and gentle pigeage twice daily. A very slow, cool maceration lasted for two weeks before the wine was transferred to Allier oak barrels (60% new) for 13 months, where slow malolactic conversion took place. Following a minimal intervention approach, the wine did not undergo further racking, minimal sulphur was added during vinification and the blend was lightly fined prior to bottling.

Three words to describe this wine:
