WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“The Domaine de la Ferte's 2017 Givry offers up aromas of red berry fruit, smoked meats and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample palate with an open-knit profile and melting tannins. It's already approachable.” William Kelley, Wine Advocate
The Abbey of Ferté, established in 1113 is a well-known place of spirituality in Burgundy. Very fast, the monks and the brothers lay develop their possessions and run vineyards in Givry. The Thenard family acquires the abbey in 1793.
The soil of Givry has a very ancient quality reputation which it considers of course of its argilo-calcareous grounds, but especially its Southeast exposed slopes and partially, as the best of them, the South. It is the case of the Premier Cru “ La Servoisine “.
The 6.25 acres of Domaine de la Ferte - of which 2.5 are amongst the most renowned Premiers Crus of the appellation - are planted with 10 000 plants/2.5 acre, according to Burgundy tradition. This is the most important density, compared to all other wine producing areas, and a practice that guarantees high quality wines. Vineyards are run in a reasoned wine-growing way. The medium age of the vineyards is 35 years old.
