Domaine Baron Thenard Givry Premier Cru Les Bois Chevaux 2018


This product is unavailable

Jean-Baptiste Bordeaux-Montrieux has been running the domaine from the 1980's and the wines have always been made in a very traditional method: fermented in wood tonneau barrels for two weeks, punched-down by foot twice a day, then aged in barrel for twelve to eighteen months (five percent new oak on the premier crus), and only very lightly filtered if necessary. They represent a very old-style of Burgundy that you find less and less: the wines (Givry Rouge) are delicate and light in color, smell like forest floor, have bright and beautiful acidity, and a measured amount of fruitiness to them.
