Savigny-Dominode1er Cru 2005

1er Cru 2005

Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Soil : Marl, chalk and limestone.

Site : Named after the latin "Dominus", "Vineyard of the Lord" an indication that this area was formerly owned by the Lord of Savigny. This vineyard is North East oriented on mid-slope.

The Vintage 2005 : Harvest took place in the early days of September after a dry and very hot summer after a superb growing season - long and cold winter followed by a rainy and humid spring. Exceptional weather conditions for an exceptional vintage. Full maturation of the grapes and good concentration. Aging in oak casks during 13 months

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of preserved Cherries mixed with chocolate and a hint of tobacco enhanced by a subtle vanilla note. Elegant, well-shaped and well-balanced. Harmonious tannic structure. Well-integrated oak note. Long and generous aftertaste.

Food pairing : Red and white meat roasted or "en sauce", game, cheeses.
