TNs: Two Burgundies from less-explored villages

  • 2017 Domaine Joblot Givry 1er Cru Mademoiselle - France, Burgundy, Côte Chalonnaise, Givry 1er Cru (7/4/2021)
    A combination of old vines in Servoisine and En Veau. Oxidative, sherry-like nose, the wood was showing on the palate as well, with the thick and dense mouthfeel. Didn’t feel that the fruit could stand up to the oak, lacking a little precision. Needs time to settle down?
  • 2018 Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet Fixin En Combe Roy - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Fixin (7/4/2021)
    Didn't like the 18 Arvelets that I tried last year but this was much better. Much more ready, didn't come across disjointed as a result of the hot vintage. The heat was still obvious, with the wine leaning towards the purple end of the fruit spectrum, and a luscious, supple texture that was verging on new world. However, there is an elegance that unmistakably brings you back to Burgundy. Amelie Berthaut's wines are always very giving and a great modern expression of classic Burgundy, if that makes sense.
