Appellation: Savigny-Les-Beaune 1er cru ‘Aux Clous’ (Burgundy region)

This vineyard is cultivated at mid-slope close to the village and adjoins the cemetery next to 'Les Serpentieres'.  It includes different types of terrain, comprising of deep, red earth on the upper level and stony ground on the remaining three-quarters. The vineyard is perfectly south-facing.)


Grapes: Pinot Noir (100%)

Aromatics: Lifted and perfumed wines with notes of red fruits, red berries and red cherries. Very floral and elegant 1er Cru, with violet notes and subtle earthiness.


Palate: Medium bodied 1er Cru, red berries, spices, subtle yet deep and nuances wine on the palate. Even if this is probably the lighter and more red fruited of the 1er Cru they make, this is very complex and delicious. Aux Clous is soft, plush, charming and has been one of my personal favorites.
