Givry is located in the centre of the Côte Chalonnaise and stretches across three villages just south of Mercurey: Dracy-le-Fort, Givry and Jambles.
SoilThe vines benefit from eastern/southeastern exposure, at altitudes of between 240 and 280 metres. The brown limestone or calcic soil originating from alterations to the Jurassic limestone results in the fact that this appellation is often compared to Volnay.
