About the wine

Tasting notes

“Aromas of cherries, sweet berries and plums mingling with hints of rose petals and classy new oak introduce the 2020 Givry 1er Cru Petit Marole, a medium-bodied, supple and velvety wine that’s lively and seamless, with a fleshy core of fruit and a gently vanillin-inflected finish” – 90 – William Kelley – The Wine Advocate
