Buissonnier Givry 2017

22.00

Description

Located on the Côte Chalonnaise, just south of Burgundy, the Givry region produces primarily red wines. With all vineyard parcels facing from east to southeast and ranging from 240 to 280 meters high, on calcareous soils with a limestone subsoil, the wine is produced exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape and is aged in oak barrels.

This brilliant, crimson-coloured wine has typically reminiscent Pinot Noir aromas (blackcurrant, morello cherry and a touch of garrigue) with liquorice, spices and leather with age. The tannins, although not overly dominant, contribute to its elegant structure.

Producer: Vignerons de Buxy

Founded on 30 June 1931, by 98 pioneer wine growers from Buxy and some surrounding areas, the Cave des Vignerons de Buxy was created thanks to the determination of the Côte Chalonnaise winegrowers to pool their talents in a common project and make their wine, tend to their vines and sell and market their produce together. The story behind this company is one of an human and social endeavour stretching back over 80 years.

In the initial years their financial resources were very limited and it was only the energy and tenacity of these first wine growers that kept the Cooperative going. In 2004 the winery built a 33,000-hl capacity vathouse for both red and white wines on the Buxy site, boasting temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats along with a pneumatic pressing station.

In 2011 the winery proudly turned 80 years old and counted over 272 family-run domaines among its members, working the vines as their fathers used to do. Every year Alain Pierre, the oenologist for the Cave des Vignerons de Buxy, reappraises past approaches and cedes the upper hand to Nature, allowing the full character of the wine to shine through.
