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 2010 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 18 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Floral fragrances (Violet) mixed with aromas of red fruit liqueur. Delicate vanilla note. Complex and racy with a beautiful texture. Crunchy fruit. Elegant. Soft tannins. Long and fresh finish.
Food pairing : Red and white meat roasted or "en sauce", game, cheeses.
