Desvignes Givry 1er “Clos Charlé” 2021
The 2021 Red Burgundies have a reputation as inconsistent and tricky, but someone forgot to tell Gautier. His lineup of 2021 Givrys is outstanding top to bottom, with each cuvée perfectly balanced and crafted – ripe plummy fruit, gorgeous floral aromatics, and sleek, polished textures. William Kelley credits the improvements in Gautier’s wines to the use of manure for fertilizer, a more careful oak regime, lighter filtration, and longer elevage.
The Givry 1er cru Clos Charlé is seriously classy red Burgundy. The nose is deep and beautiful, with wild cherries, chocolate, baking spice and cinnamon. Again the extraction is masterful – just enough armature to match the material. It’s noticeably longer than the village, but not a bit harsh, with tannins that are subtle, papery, and fine.
