Savigny-lès-Beaune sits at the upper end of the Côte de Beaune and this single vineyard Chardonnay is a rare treat in an appellation better known for its reds. After picking and pressing, the juice goes straight into barrels for fermentation, with a daily stirring of the lees throughout the 10-14 days. The wine is then matured in one-third new oak barrels for 10 months prior to blending, settling and bottling.
Pale straw in colour, the nose is quite floral, a hint of honeysuckle with citrus and underlying stone fruit. Deliciously fresh on the open, melon and nectarine characters set on a fine, minerally texture, a buttery brioche aftertaste whipped clean by refreshing grapefruit on the finish.
Peak drinking 3-5 years from vintage.
