2017 Givry 1er Cru Clos du Cellier aux Moines, Domaine du Cellier aux Moines

In Burgundy’s Janus-like 2017 vintage, this wine has the requisite substance, structure and balance for the long haul.

This was the first year the domaine was almost fully biodynamic, and that perhaps explains the wine’s brilliance. Immediately expressive, this grabs your attention.

Aromas leap from the glass. On the palate, it combines firm mineral qualities with a Bing cherry-like fruitiness in a suave and elegant package. Fractionally less ripe compared to the 2015, its minerality shines. A hint of bitterness on the finish adds to its appeal. Supple yet firm tannins provide perfect support. Drink 2026- 2030 Alcohol 13.5%
