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 cold and cloudy winter led to an extremely wet spring with flooding in Savigny-Les-Beaune. A difficult start to the growing cycle with poor fruit set during flowering giving again a small crop. A ferocious windy hail storm fell on July 23th which wiped out a large proportion of the grapes in Savigny and Pernand (70-95% lost). Corton luckily escaped this catastrophe. The cuvée Savigny les Lavières Wasn't made because of the minute crop. The solace came at the end of summer with good weather for the latter part of the season, allowing us to harvest late (6 to 15 october) and hence optimise the ripeness. The wines are debse, structured and fresh, promising a bright future.
