Savigny-les-Beaune Blanc

45 years old

The vineyard is located in the area of Savigny Les Beaune appellation in the village of the same name. The grapes are mainly from the parcel Les Vermots Dessus. The vineyard is in the valley where you have wind and colder temperatures giving later maturities grapes. Soil : The subsoil consists of very hard limestone gravel (poor soils) giving minerality to the wine. 100% chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

the grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. The grapes are wholly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a cold settling and gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks (20% of new oak) of 500 liters and not 228 liters to avoid too much exchange between wood and wine. The primary and malolactic fermentations can then begin with wild yeasts.

The ageing is long on fine lees during 12 months. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and gently filtered before bottling it following the lunar calendar ("fruit day to get a wine on freshness and minerality).

Wine mostly rich aromatically with mostly floral and fruity notes and very much freshness in mouth.
