Domaine Giraudon Bourgogne Chitry 2018

'We the north.’ Chitry, on the very northern fringe of Pinot Noir viticulture in France, is producing champion Pinot in an area better known for their white wines. Serve this wine at 18 ˚ in a Burgundy stem and enjoy the mouth-watering acidity, sweet spice aromas, and bright red fruit flavours. Silky and elegant, delicate tannins and distinct minerality round out this rare gem; a Burgundy built to impress, at a price you can also enjoy.

Generational winegrowers, the Giraudon Family now farms 23 hectares of vineyard, seven of which are dedicated to Pinot Noir. Marcel, daughter Aurélie, and son Thibaut, continue to use traditional farming practices; low yields, weeds are ploughed under, and the grapes hand picked. These days Aurélie handles the cellar duties with her brother Thibaut managing the fields, all under the watchful eye of Marcel. In addition to Chitry rouge, they grow Chitry Blanc, Chablis, and Crémant de Bourgogne.
