Savigny Lès Beaune - Aux Fourneaux 2009 - Wine


Aux Fourneaux
Aux Fourneaux

Location

Appellation: SAVIGNY-LES-BEAUNE Premier Cru Aux Fourneaux Grape variety: Pinot Noir Colour: Red Surface area: 1.68 hectares Exposure: East

Terroir

The soil is clayey and deep although there is more limestone in the upper part of the parcel. These vines are situated at the start of the slope and face east.

Tasting

The wine expresses itself through freshness and fruit. Its structure is complex and deep, its substance rich; it is opulent without being heavy.

Vintage

A defining word for this vintage: MATURITY. A vintage that brought us the highest degrees in alcohol ever achieved until then. The Savignys, just like the Pernands and Cortons, were at more than 13.5°. We couldn't believe our eyes (riveted on the mustimètre) during harvesting. Very fortunately, but also largely due to bio-dynamic growing, acidities didn't budge. So that gave us wines with strong intensity of colour, a nose already very open for Premiers Crus that are charming and suave on the palate. The tasting pleasure is immediate. However, we would like to keep these wines a long time so that richness may give way gently to finesse and complexity. Very great reds for long keeping (more than 10 years); whites full, rich and unctuous to be drunk now and for the 5 to 8 years to come.
