Desvignes Givry 2016

$26

Vinous’s Neal Martin discovered Desvignes last year, and writes of their wines: “vivid,” “excellent,” “wonderful balance,” “punchy,” and “really quite superb.”

The 2016 is delightul. The nose is ripe and unusually complex, showing tapenade, maillard reaction, thyme and blackberries; the mouth is ripe and bursting, with notes of cherry compote and dried roses.

The Desvignes wines age well, but there’s no need to wait on this 2016. It’s an upgraded bistro-style red to be served with a bistro meal — think steak frites or duck confit.
