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

A spring-time just like summer. It was a very precocious vintage, starting off with trumpets blaring but already less festive by 14th July. Rain and storms; hope was lost... We were to harvest at the very beginning of September and after draconian sorting of the crop: we would witness the birth of crisp, light and fruity wines in red; whites would be taut, just as we like them, and can be kept for more than ten years (recommended).
