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 late wet spring with rain during flowering. A high level of disease pressure, predominantly from downy mildew that was well managed by the domaine. Grapes reached optimum ripeness thanks to their healthy foliage. Vine yields were low due to the millerandage from the cold and wet flowering. Half the normal crop was picked, starting on september 20th with a good latter part of the saison. Grapes had an exceptional quality and in turn made extremely balanced, intense and vibrant wines. Great potential for ageing reds and whites.
