Savigny-les-Beaune "Aux Fournaux" Sans Soufre

2019
France
Burgundy

A barrel selection that did not see any sulfur during winemaking, aging, or bottling! Starting with the 2018 vintage, the domaine chose to blend the 1er Cru Fourneaux into the village wine and it’s now labeled Savigny-les-Beaune Fournaux, after the site. The Villages has always come from the Fournaux parcel, which sits just next to the 1er Cru. Claude and Francois like how the Villages and 1er Cru tasted blended, giving the village level wine more density and complexity. The Sans Soufre bottling has a wax capsule and says "Made without added sulfites" in red on the back label, otherwise it looks the same from the front.

"The second iteration of a new cuvée blending communal and premier cru holdings in this climat together, the 2019 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Fourneaux crusts from the glass with aromas of sweet berries, peonies, spices and soil tones. Medium-bodied, supple and lively, with a sweet core of fruit, melting tannins and a saline finish, it’s a charming, giving Savigny that was bottled shortly before I tasted it."
