Domaine Joblot L'Empreinte Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The 2016 L'Empreinte is the debut cuvée of Joblot's blended Givry premier crus. Wearied by all my bitter experience with buying wines in Malaysia, you can imagine my relief when it poured out bright and purple, and the smell of crushed cassis and spice wafted out of the bottle. In the glass, the nose adds intrigue with smokey, meaty aromas and a nice acetic lift. The wine is velvety, ripe and concentrated on the palate, framed by rather obvious wood still, with chewy tannins and lively acids. Finishes with medium length, dominated by plums and earth. Although it doesn't quite hit the spot for me, this was a solid pinot noir especially after a good number of weeks dry. Excellent value for those who like their Burgundy a little less subtle.

Lovely rich purple blue color. Ripe cherries and spices. Acidic. Opened up nicely. Lovely with a filet of beef medium rare and fresh grilled vegetables. Nice as an aperitif wine prior to dinner as well

Seems less harmonized than Servoisine, equally stylish and pretty. Modern but done right.
