Domaine Masse Givry Champs Lalot 1er Cru
Recently upgraded to premier cru status, Champs Lalot was the first parcel (1.25 acres) the Domaine originally purchased. The 1er cru vines are located at a higher altitude and are facing East. Its soil is stony clay and chalk, giving the wine its fine tannins and pure, mineral character.
The Champs Lalot has beautiful aromatic intensity, with notes of red and black fruits (cherry, raspberry, blackberry, currant), floral notes, spices and vanilla. The mouth is rich with fruit with some savory flavors. The mouthfeel is elegant, slightly oaky with silky tannins. Complexity, harmony and elegance are all united. The finish is supple, long and fruity.
