Savigny-Dominode1er Cru 2009

1er Cru 2009

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 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 16 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Aromas of ripe dark fruit mixed with spices. Delicate vanilla note. Complex with a beautiful structure. Tight texture. Generous vinous character. Well-integrated oak and firm but rounded tannins. Persistent aftertaste.

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