The Cote Chalonnaise village Givry is known as an excellent source of good value red wines, but it also produces a small amount of wonderful whites. Domaine Baron Thenard is one of Givry’s most important estates and has vast holdings throughout Burgundy. In addition to being the second largest owner of Le Montrachet, Thenard owns plots in the grand crus Grands Echezeaux, and Corton, Clos du Roi. However, the best value in the portfolio is a white wine made from the estate’s hometown. Domaine Thenard’s Givry blanc is very aromatic and lively on the palate. The 2007 vintage produced wines that high in acidity and of medium weight, and this wine is a prime example.
