Domaine Chofflet-Valdenaire Givry Rouge 2010
The Givry Rouge comes from several sloping, amphitheatre vineyards in Russilly on limestone-clay soils with southeast exposures. The 2010 Givry Rouge is packed with bright, succulent dark-cherry fruit and represents outstanding value in the estate-bottled 2010 Burgundy
The Chofflet-Valdenaire estate, located in the hillside hamlet of Russily, has been in their family for over 100 years. Today the 11 hectare Domaine is run by Jean Chofflet’s son-in-law, Denis Valdenaire. He produces deliciously fruity, accessible Pinot Noirs that represent outstanding value. The Domaine possesses very well-placed vineyards with an average age of 30 years. Denis has been dedicated to sustainable farming for many years, and was a very early devotee of lutte raisonnée practices.
