PRODUCER NOTE:
One of the greatest producers in Southern Burgundy, the Joblot family has been producing fine wines for over four generations. They own 14 hectares of vineyard in four red and two white Premier Cru areas in Givry and lay great emphasis on vineyard management with small yields. Their total production is 6,000 cases per annum. The wines are vinified with a high proportion of new barriques resulting in powerful but elegant wines of top class quality. These sought after wines have limited availability.

VINEYARD:
Givry is a small village in the heart of the Cote Chalonnaise, a sub-region in the south of Burgundy. The cuvee Mademoiselle is a blend of fruit from two Premier Cru sites. The first site is the walled vineyard of Clos de la Servoisine, where old Chardonnay vines are grown in limestone soils; and the second is the named plot of ‘En Veau’, where the fruit is harvested from the older vines which are grown in clay soils. In both plots the Guyot trained vines are low yielding, producing small, concentrated berries. The vines are cultivated according to a philosophy of minimum intervention; taking a natural and patient approach, which involves meticulous attention in the vineyard, but with a light touch, in order to retain the essence of the terroir.

WINEMAKING:
Traditional vinification took place, with fermentation starting in tank and then being transferred to French oak barrels, of which 60% were new and 40% were one year old. The wine underwent malolactic conversion, resulting in a softer, rounder mouthfeel. The wine was aged for one year in barrels from the Allier forests. Blending took place following the maturation period and the wine was lightly filtered prior to being bottled.

TASTING NOTES:
Elegant and poised, this stunning wine shows complex aromas of yellow stone fruits and citrus notes layered with delicate floral nuances. Harmoniously balanced, it has a generous texture on the palate and a wonderful tension on the finish.
