Savigny-lès-Beaune "Clos du Village"

Presentation

Location
Situated in the westernmost reaches of the Savigny-lès-Beaune AOC within the quaint hamlet of Le Village, this vineyard boasts a rich limestone soil. This enclosed walled plot is partly planted with the Pinot Blanc grape variety (approximately 20%).
Terroir
The south-facing exposure, coupled with a very white soil, provides excellent ripening conditions and abundant luminosity. Situated at the exit of the Combe de Barboron, this plot benefits from cool winds descending from the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, naturally regulating the temperature of the clos.
Vinification
Harvesting is done manually, followed by a slow pressing lasting 3 hours.
Ageing
Maturation takes place in oak barrels (no new barrels) for a duration of 15 months.
Varietals
Chardonnay : 80%
Pinot blanc : 20%

Advice

Tasting
