2010 Domaine Joblot Givry Premier Cru Clos du Cellier aux Moines
Single Bottles (75cl) @ £24.00
      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
The most impressively structured wine of the Joblot portfolio, this will please in youth but wow with age. This is deep-fruited (quite black) with a firm structure and long finish, the sort of wine that can only embarrass its more expensive contemporaries further north. Indeed, many commentators suggest this cuvee, in particular, rivals the best of Chambolle-Musigny.
Drinking Dates:
2013 to 2025
Cépagement:
100% Pinot Noir
Upbringing:
Grapes are 100% destemmed. After fermentation, wines spend 16 months in assorted oak barrels (Francois Freres). Decidedly non-interventionist winemaking.
ABV:
13%
Critic Reviews:
"Precise, fresh scents of mingled red and black cherries with poised and vivacious fruit flavours which warm, fill and fatten on the palate." (Andrew Jefford, FT 10/08/2013)

"An exceptionally fresh, bright and cool nose mixes a variety of red and blue berry fruit aromas plus notes of spice, earth and underbrush. The very rich, delicious and mouth coating flavors benefit substantially from the tannin-buffering effects of the abundant dry extract that confers a seductive character upon the complex, balanced and seriously long finish. This precise and vibrant effort is a wine of impressive harmony." 91/100 (Burghound)

"For a single recommendation, rather than one of my own choices, here’s a memorable wine – a perfumed, elegant and warmly fruited red burgundy selected by Andrew Jefford, who was the inspiration for Absolutely Cracking, via his groundbreaking book The New France. It’s Domaine Joblot Givry Premier Cru Clos du Cellier aux Moines 2010, £24 from www.bigredwine.co.uk." (Liz Sagues, Ham & High)
