Domaine Alain Roy

Alain Roy is best known as owner of Chateau de la Saule, the largest and most prestigious domaine in the appellation of Montagny, which has been in the Roy family since 1805. Alain Roy has been responsible for the domaine since 1972 and given his shape, is also well known for having supplied his image for the pregnant lady that is a requirement on French labels.

Givry “En Vauvry” A gloriously fruity everyday Pinot from a prime village site, to be consumed with pleasure both by the glass or bottle. Hand harvested and de-stemmed after sorting. Maximum 10 days cold soaking, Oak aged (less than 20% new) 12-14 months. Pure red fruits, slightly smoky, well-integrated tannins with a light touch of oak, this is a great honest Pinot.
