Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er cru Les Lavières


Mid-slope and predominantly limestone. Lavières comes from the word “lave” which in this case has no volcanic reference, but was the term used in the past to describe the flat limestone tiles used to cover the roofs. In fact, these famous stones are found here in the sub-soil. The vines are more than fifty years-old and are situated in the finest part of the appellation. Fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in barrel for 18 months, 10% new oak.

"The 2020 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Lavières wafts from the glass with aromas of raspberries, orange rind, peonies, sweet spices and wintergreen. Medium to full-bodied, ample and perfumed, it's an elegantly fleshy, layered wine framed by fine, powdery tannins."

"The 2020 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Lavières 1er Cru has a pure, perfumed bouquet with scents of raspberry and peony, the 100% whole bunch barely perceptable. The palate is medium bodied with fine grain tannins, a fine bead of acidity, cohesive with fine backbone and a slightly peppery, clove-tinged finish. Wonderful."

"Cooler and more restrained aromas include those of spicy dark berries and an array of elegant floral nuances. The rich but racy medium-bodied flavors possess excellent volume as well as evident minerality on the slightly more complex and persistent finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth."
