A complex and well-structured Burgundy showing
expressive aromas of violets with ripe red fruits on the

elegant.


Producer Note
One of the greatest producers in Southern Burgundy, the Joblot family has been
producing fine wines for over four generations. They own 14 hectares of vineyard in
four red and two white Premier Cru areas in Givry and lay great emphasis on
vineyard management with small yields. Their total production is 6,000 cases per
annum. The wines are vinified with a high proportion of new barriques resulting in
powerful but elegant wines of top class quality. These sought after wines have limited
availability.


Vineyard
L’Empreinte means ‘Footprint’ in French and this cuvée is the result of the best
parcels of Domaine Joblot’s four 1er Cru vineyards: Clos Maroles, Clos Du Cellier Aux
Moines , Bois Chevaux and clos de la Servoisine, in the Burgundian appellation of
Givry. The soils are all limestone, except in clos du Cellier Aux Moines where brown
clay components can be found. The soils are lightly harrowed rather than ploughed
to avoid soil erosion. The vines are pruned to the single cane Guyot method and are
planted at a density of 8,000 per hectare; they are low yielding, producing small,
concentrated flavoursome berries. The vineyards are cultivated according to a
philosophy of minimum intervention, in order to retain the essence of the terroir.


Winemaking
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.


Tasting Note
A very expressive nose with pure, ripe red and black fruit aromas which lead to a
silky, smooth palate with velvety tannins, great length and aromatic persistence. This
is full of finesse.
