Location

Appellation: CORTON Grand Cru Grape variety: Pinot Noir Surface area: 1.12 hectares Average age of vines: 35 years Exposure: East Colour: Red

Terroir

This cuvee comes from 4 parcels situated mid-slope and spread in homogenous fashion over the whole appellation. The soils are deep and made up in equal parts of limestone and clay, giving the wine lovely balance and great length on the palate. It is a terroir that is very representative of the appellation CORTON.

Tasting

Here, terroir expresses itself strongly but the wine remains elegant, although powerful. A lovely sensation of opulence and fullness, with a very persistent finish and enveloped in a tannic structure that is fine but quite present. Hints of forest floor aromas are found in it, from its earliest youth. With age, it moves towards wilder flavours.

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.
