Desvignes Givry 2020

$32

From a dry, sundrenched vintage, the 2020s from Desvignes drink like a cross between Gamay and Nuits-St-Georges. The 2020 Givry rouge punches well above its weight, with outstanding richness and intensity. If the Côte Chalonnaise calls to mind red-fruited, lightweight reds with bright tannins, it’s time to reconsider.

The Desvignes 2020 Givry packs an extraordinary amount of flavor into a $32 bottle – it’s among the best entry-level Burgundies in our cellar, and we’d put it up against much bigger names from the Côte de Nuits. The nose bursts with cassis and black fruits, with hints of earth and spices. The mouth is rich and layered with tremendous concentration. Kelley awarded 90 points, finding a “layered and concentrated palate framed by powdery tannins and succulent acids.”
