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.


Vintage
2017 saw some spring frost; however the temperatures increased throughout the
latter part of spring and early summer. The summer experienced warm, dry
conditions interspersed with hot spells, which allowed ripening to develop at a good
pace. The vines reached good levels of maturity and produced ripe, healthy fruit.


Vineyard
Givry is an amphitheatre of vines facing south and east crowned with woods which
helps to protect the vines from cold winds and hail. The soils are made up of rich
limestone. The vines are cultivated according to a philosophy of minimum
intervention; taking a natural and patient approach, which involves meticulous
attention in the vineyard, but with a light touch, in order to retain the essence of the
terroir. Light harrowing takes place rather than ploughing to avoid soil erosion. Winter
pruning, debudding and green harvesting (when required) takes place to control
yields and concentrate the flavours in the grapes. The grapes for this wine come
from 38 year old, single cane Guyot trained vines, which are grown in the south
facing Premier Cru vineyard of Clos de Servoisine, in Givry.


Winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested, meticulously hand sorted and were gently
pressed as whole bunches. A very slow, cold extraction took place to obtain colour,
aroma and flavours, with a gentle pigeage twice daily. Fermentation took place in
temperature controlled vats with indigenous yeasts. The must was then transferred to
barrels to continue fermentation. The wine underwent slow malolactic fermentation
and was matured for 12 months in French oak barriques, of which 50% were new
and 50% were second passage. The wine was lightly filtered prior to bottling.


Tasting Note
A refined and elegant Pinot Noir with attractive aromas of fresh, wild red fruits and
violets. Generously textured with a good weight, silky tannins and a lovely, lingering
finish. This is a classic Burgundy from this top producer.
