Burgundy – Givry 1er Cru Clos Salomon 2002

 

This Pinot Noir from the Burgundy region of northeastern France is a very good quality wine. I think we paid about $25 – $30 but it did not disappoint. 

 

Givry takes its name from a village located in the region of Burgundy France.

 

 

We decanted this bottle and once poured into our glasses we detected its scent of cherry, black peppercorns and an earthy quality that reminded us of that smell of woodland when it has just rained. The taste of this rich medium to full-bodied wine is one of  ripe dark berries with perhaps a hint of vanilla.

 

Whilst not an every day wine, we would certainly buy this again for a dinner party.
