2000 Joblot, Givry Clos de la ServoisineMar. 2005
Amongst a sea of tiring 2000’s – mainly from the Côte de Beaune – it’s nice have a drop that still shows both energy and interest. Medium, medium-plus young colour. Crushed black cherry nose. Refreshing, succulent black fruit that turns a little creamy on the finish. There’s a little oak and a trace of astringency but it’s not tiring yet. Just in case, I’m going to drink-up the last three of these and enjoy them now.
2000 Joblot, Givry Pied de ChaumeDec. 2002
Medium ruby colour, still cherry red at the rim. Nose has some low down traces of oak and forcefull black cherry. Very good acidity compliments intense cherry (again!) fruit. The tannins are well covered though fraying a little at the edges. This is a super-succulent wine. Very moreish, also very good.
