Terroir

Clayey soil, yellow marls and deep ground at the foot of the slope for Les Fourneaux. In the northern vineyard of Savigny-lès-Beaune, the parcel is found between the villages of Savigny and Aloxe-Corton. Limestone soil for the parcel at Les Saucours.

Tasting

The wine is full, rich and supple, fully expressing the fruity side of Pinot Noir. Red fruits dominate (strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant). Its abundant freshness makes it very pleasant and easy to drink. We advise keeping it for 5 to 8 years, although it is drinkable earlier for those lacking patience.

Vintage

Here was a vintage with very good maturity and lovely balance. The grape skins were fine and so would be the wines. Structure was forgotten in favour of softness and the wines let themselves be appreciated from their earliest age. Of moderate colour, the fruit explodes on the palate while tertiary aromas start to be noticed. They are delicious to drink now, both reds and whites. The Pernands Ile des Vergelesses and Cortons can however be kept for another 3 to 5 years.
