Domaine Du Cellier Aux Moines
domaine du cellier aux moines 'les charmelottes` 2020 750ml
The Cellier aux Moines of Givry is a unique group of historical buildings, a house with a large cellar and a farm, that has survived the vicissitudes of time. Having been the Abbey of La Ferté’s wine-producing property for nearly seven centuries, and then owned by the same family for two centuries following the French Revolution, it was purchased in 2004 by Philippe and Catherine Pascal and their three children, Camille, Marguerite and Alexis.
96 points, James Suckling
"Enveloping nose of orange blossom and perfectly ripe oranges with underlying complexity from long sur-lie aging. Then comes an expansive, yet energetic palate with the kind of concentration and richness we associate with Grand Cru from the Cotes d'Or. Stunning mineral freshness at the very long finish. The first vintage of this wine, from a very high-altitude, south-southwest facing site with vines planted in 1939. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
