A wine from the village of Savigny-lès-Beaune produced by nearly 50-year-old vines.
Terroir, production method and maturation: The grapes used for the wine are harvested by hand from a 0.57-hectare vineyard planted in 1971, the soil of which is calcareous clay. 20% of the grapes go with the stems and the alcoholic fermentation is allowed to take place spontaneously in open oak vats while the maceration lasts 15-20 days. The grapes are compressed pneumatically, separating the free-flowing grape juice from the pressed juice. The wine matures for 18 months in old oak barrels and after blending for a few months in tanks. The wine is not clarified or filtered.
Use: With grilled tuna and salad seasoned with seaweed.
Description: An aromatic scent filled with dark fruits and forest strawberry. Medium-bodied taste with a hint of raspberry. The tannin structure is elegantly flexible and the wine is very balanced.
