Savigny-Dominode1er Cru 2013

1er Cru 2013

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 2013 : .After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 17 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe cherries mixed with spices. Delicate vanilla note. Well- structured. Fine texture. Elegant tannins. Well-integrated oak note. Long and refreshing aftertaste.

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