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 late wet spring with rain during flowering. A high level of disease pressure, predominantly from downy mildew that was well managed by the domaine. Grapes reached optimum ripeness thanks to their healthy foliage. Vine yields were low due to the millerandage from the cold and wet flowering. Half the normal crop was picked, starting on september 20th with a good latter part of the saison. Grapes had an exceptional quality and in turn made extremely balanced, intense and vibrant wines. Great potential for ageing reds and whites.
