After studying viticulture in Beaune and undertaking several work placements in different estates in Burgundy, Eric Desvignes joined the family business in 1983. With a wealth of viticultural experience behind him and traditional know-how handed down by his father, Eric took over the Domaine in 1998 and today it extends over approximately ten hectares producing Givry Red and White, premier cru and village wines.
The combination of old vines, low yields and organic farming at the vineyard in Givry creates incredible aromatic complexity and a lush texture generally found only in wines with much greater price tags.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate absolutely raved about the new releases from this red-hot estate. Here’s what they had to say, “The young Gautier Desvignes continues his rapid ascent at this 11-hectare Givry estate, and I was delighted by these new releases. In the vineyards, he’s moving away from chemical products, cultivating the soil and using manure instead of synthetic fertilizers. In the cellar, he’s refining his barrel program, working with fûts from Rousseau, Taransaud and Rémond, as well as used Chassin barrels. Bottling is now carried out by a superior contractor, and wines that require it now see crossflow filtration rather than more aggressive alternatives. New glass bottles and thicker corks complete the picture. Elegant, sumptuous reds and bright, chiseled whites are the order of the day, and everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended.”

“The 2019 Givry 1er Cru La Grande Berge reveals aromas of plums, cherries, raw cocoa and spices. Medium to full-bodied, powdery and enveloping, it’s lively and fleshy, with fine tannins that assert themselves with youthful grip on the finish”
This is a fabulous price for a red burgundy that has the texture and depth of a wine with a much steeper price tag.
Pair with grilled salmon, roasted poultry and mushroom dishes.
