Savigny-Dominode1er Cru 2020

1er Cru 2020

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 2020 : After a very mild winter, spring arrived with warm temperatures in March which engendered a very quick and sustained growth of the vines. After a very short frost episode early May with no consequence in the vineyards, a mild weather with some rains settled down until end of June. Summer was punctuated in July by several and quite long heat waves. Vineyards with a clay soil were less affected by the low level of rainfalls during spring and by the summer heat. The harvest in Burgundy started around August 20, which was historically early for the region. At Chanson, they started on August 24 under a bright sunshine. 2020 red wines are generous, concentrated and beautifully terroir-driven.

Tasting : Ruby colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with aromas of ripe red cherries and raspberries on a hint of minerality. Complex with a crunchy texture. Well-shaped tannins. Long and elegant aftertaste with a hint of spice. Score : 16.5/20 Jancis Robinson - 92/100 Vinous

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