Savigny-Dominode1er Cru 2012

1er Cru 2012

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 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure. Aging in oak casks during 14 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of black current, spice and earth scents. Delicate vanilla note. Rich, voluminous with a beautiful structure. Deep with a tight texture. Hint of minerality. Long and spicy aftertaste. Score : 93 Burgundy 2012 - Special Report - Tim Atkin / 2014

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