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 cold and cloudy winter led to an extremely wet spring with flooding in Savigny-Les-Beaune. A difficult start to the growing cycle with poor fruit set during flowering giving again a small crop. A ferocious windy hail storm fell on July 23th which wiped out a large proportion of the grapes in Savigny and Pernand (70-95% lost). Corton luckily escaped this catastrophe. The cuvée Savigny les Lavières Wasn't made because of the minute crop. The solace came at the end of summer with good weather for the latter part of the season, allowing us to harvest late (6 to 15 october) and hence optimise the ripeness. The wines are debse, structured and fresh, promising a bright future.
