Savigny-Dominode1er Cru 2008

1er Cru 2008

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 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in bright and generous red wines giving off a beautiful aromatic combination layered with chocolate nuances. Aged in oak during 15 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Fragrances of violet mixed with aromas of red fruit and spices. Delicate vanilla note. Beautiful structure. Dense and complex texture. Generous vinous character. Well-integrated oak and onctuous tannins. Persistant aftertaste.

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