Savigny-Dominode1er Cru 2006

1er Cru 2006

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 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 14 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intens aromas of red plum and mixed with vanilla. Wonderfully refreshing structure. Well-structured and generous. Well-integrated tannins and delicate oak note. Persistent aftertaste.

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