Givry is primarily a red wine made from Pinot Noir grapes. To the eye it presents a brilliant carmine or crimson colour set off by purplish highlights. Its bouquet generally evokes violets, strawberries, and blackberries with variants which include liquorice, game, and sometimes spice (cloves). It is quite tannic in its early youth but after 3 to 5 years in the bottle it becomes suppler and fuller. It boasts a firm structure.
White Givry (Chardonnay) is a bright, limpid pale gold. It is redolent of aromas of honey or lemon with notes of lime and lily, then dried fruits (often toasted) come to the fore after the wine has aged some years. The mouth is delicate, with a balance between mellowness and acidity which guarantees its keeping qualities as well as giving it good length.
