Founded in the 12th century by Cistercian monks in the heart of Burgundy, mid-way between the abbeys of Cluny and Cîteaux, between Dijon and Mâcon, the Cellier aux Moines was established in the 12th century by Cistercian monks from the Abbey of La Ferté.
To further improve the quality of the Clos du Cellier aux Moines Premier Cru, Guillaume created a second wine, called “Le Petit Clos du Cellier,” made of the younger vines and grapes specially sorted by Catherine and her dream team at harvest. This is the wine which we are featuring today.
This southern facing estate was purchased by the Pascal family (Philippe & Catherine) in 2004. The domaine represents a unique plot of 12 acres, and it is one of the best Premier Crus of Givry. Perched on the top of a limestone hill, the Cellier aux Moines overlooks a centuries-old stone wall enclosed vineyard and the village of Givry. Beginning in 2016 their winemaker Guillaume Marko began the transition to organic farming. Today the estate is practicing biodynamic.
The 2016 Domaine du Cellier aux Moines Givry "Le Petit Clos du Cellier" Burgundy Rouge is fleshy, complex, and generous on the palate, with lots of succulent red berries, an undercurrent of terroir-driven earthiness, pliant tannins, and bright acidity.
“The 2016 Givry Le Petit Clos du Cellier offers up attractive aromas of earthy raspberries and plums, followed by a medium-bodied, fleshy palate with a succulent core of fruit and youthfully chewy but fine-grained tannins. It should drink well for a decade.” Wine Advocate
