2013 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru “Les Serpentieres”
100% Pinot Noir
On the northern bank in the direction of Pernand-Vergelesses are where the finest examples of Savigny-les-Beaune invariably hail from. “Serpentières” is generally considered as the finest vineyard in Savigny, with its full southern exposure and heavy, chalky, mineral-rich soils.
Aged 18 months in French oak.
WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES |
A deep cherry colour, crimson with garnet highlights, then a bouquet redolent of small black and red fruits (blackcurrant, cherry, raspberry) and flowers (violets). The body is discreetly tannic, rich. It keeps its fruitiness. Roundness and volume, balance and power, in just the right proportions, often evoking Morello cherries with a charming elegance.
