Desvignes Givry 1er “Clos du Vernoy” 2018

$38

Neal Martin of Vinous calls the Desvignes wines “excellent,” and “really quite superb.” The Wine Advocate’s William Kelley praises them as “succulent,” “elegant,” and “a decided success.” Kelley named winemaker Gautier Desvignes one of the region’s “Five Emerging Talents to Watch.”

The Clos Vernoy 1er cru, the family’s monopole just behind the winery, is very nice in 2018. There’s a pleasantly dusty nose mingling with dark cherry fruit and a floral element that recalls peonies and perhaps menthol. The wine is already drinking well; it’s refreshing but mouthfilling at the same time. This is a pretty wine that will be just right with grilled chicken and oven roasted new potatoes.
