Givry is primarily a red wine made from Pinot Noir Grapes. To the eye it presents a brilliant carmine or crimson color set off by purplish highlights. Its bouquet generally evokes violets, strawberries, and blackberries with variants which include liqorice, game and sometimes spice (cloves). It is quite tannic in its early youth but after 3 to 5 years in the bottle it become suppler and fuller. It boasts a firm structure. 

The plot is situated south of the appellation, it faces east, and enjoys good sunshine and good drainage because it is very rocky. The hard limestone rock outcrops on the hillside where we operate five parcels, totaling 2.14 hectares of Pinot Noir. The vines have different ages 10, 25, and 40 years.

On this part of the appellation, we produce very aromatic wines that are characterized more by finesse and subtlety by the power. The notes of fruit evolve into the undergrowth, mouth consistency is soft, fresh, with fine tannins supported by a barrel aging control. It is on the long finish that expresses the terroir.
