Guide Hachette Graded Pinot Noir Release

Domaine Mouton makes four Premier Cru Givry, and all of them stand to convert you to the wonders of quality Givry—an appellation that has never been faddish or collectible outside of Burgundy itself. Les Grandes Prétans in particular is known for producing deep, soulful reds representing the dark, mysterious side of Pinot Noir.

Sourced from low-yielding vines planted on Givry’s prime limestone soil and matured in French oak (60% new and 40% second year barrels), this 2013 1er Cru red Burgundy has just entered its prime and exhibits pure black plum and cherry fruit along with hints of earthy loam and exotic spice. Ideal as an accompaniment to soft, characterful cheeses, this red Burgundy is also a delight with pork and gamey poultry like quail.

·      This wine is sourced from a small plot of vines elevated to 1er Cru status due to its unique terroir and microclimate.

·      The 12-hectare Domaine Mouton is now in the hands of Laurent Mouton. Laurent grew up in Givry and began helping his father Gerard in the vineyards and cellar as a young boy.

·      The 2013 vintage was miniscule in the Côte Chalonnaise, as it was for most of Burgundy, with classic, cool-climate Pinot Noirs produced across the top vineyard sites. “It is certainly true that the hundreds of 2013 burgundies I have tasted to date are generally delightfully terroir-specific,” writes Jancis Robinson.

·      No insecticides are permitted in the vineyard, and all agricultural practices at this winery follow Lutte Raisonnée, France’s age-old equivalent to sustainable agriculture.

 

This wine is dry and refreshing. You'll taste bouquets of red fruits, but nothing overpowering. 

From the winery:

Eugene MOUTON, at the origin of the first step of the estate in viticulture is followed by Charles who pursues with 3 hectares of vines then. After blacksmith trade he becomes winegrower. At the time, he produces and sales all of his production on the trade market. 

Then, in 1968, Gerard, his son, succeed him. He expands the estate with his wife Armelle and begins production and sale of the first bottles in 1976 then. The estate develops until 1996. Without bottle production til 1976, 60,000 bottle-necks per year leave the cellar today.

Since May 2002, the vineyard continues with his son, Laurent. The familial estate since 4 generations is growing now 12 hectares of vines in Bourgogne, Givry, and Givery 1er Cru AOC. Our vines planted in limestone soils reveal fine and subtle white and red wines capable of age sheltered from the greed. 

Simply roasted white meats like roast veal or a good roast chicken. Dishes with a sauce based on red burgundy such as coq au vin and boeuf bourguignon. Four favourite matches for coq au vin. Dishes with black truffles and porcini.

Another Tasteful Journey Through the Fields of Burgundy


You know when you find that one brand, wine or otherwise, that just consistently gets you to nod your head in satisfaction? That's how Domaine Mouton has been for me. Ever since our big Burgundy wine acquisition at the end of last year, their bottles have yet to disappoint. They have made quite the impression on this geek, especially for their quality-price ratio.

A perfume of rose petals and lush strawberry field wafts to the nose. Light bodied on the palate, showing flavors of fresh cranberry, morning dew and balanced acidity. Drinking nicely in its window, this is a good wine to have around on a mellow weeknight. 93 Points - JZ June '18
