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 precocious spring led to an early growing cycle. Unfortunately a cold snap set upon the flowering, which took away hopes of good yields. Vines were then hit by hail on the 28th of June the storm fell from Meursault, corton, lowering yet again the quantity of grapes. We harvested from the 18th to 26th september, with half the normal crop though picking at perfect ripeness. The reds have a great aromatic complexity and silky tannins, whites have freshness and a density. The wines are tasting very well at the moment.
