Albert Bichot Savigny-Les-Beaune Premier Cru Les Peuillets

Albert Bichot Savigny-Les-Beaune Premier Cru Les Peuillets 750ml   
Sku: 1892586*

Savigny is a typical old Burgundy wine-making village a few hundred yards away from the north of Beaune. Today, the Savigny-les-Beaune appellation is shared between the cultivation of Chardonnay and the majority varietal Pinot Noir. It groups together 22 vineyards classified under Premier Cru, one of which is the famous « Les Peuillets ». Planted on a clay-and-limestone soil on hard Callovian limestone bedrock called ”pearled flagstones”, the « Les Peuillets» Premier Cru vineyard is just on the limits of the Beaune appellation at an average altitude of 250 metres (820 ft). The land here is on gentle slopes orientated south-southeast, providing ideal exposure to the sun, which ensures full ripening of the grapes.

Tasting notes
To the eye, this Savigny les Beaune « les Peuillets» is very seductive with its palette of deep red with garnet reflections. The nose is fruity with black and red fruit aromas leading on to more discreet spicy notes. The well-structured mouth evolves onto a complex finish with more gamey and well-blended oak.

Food pairing
An ideal wine with grilled meat (beef filet with red wine sauce, duck with cranberries) or a beautiful cheese platter with Abbey-produced cheese such as Citeaux de Bourgogne. Serving and keeping Serve between 16°C - 18°C (60°F - 64°F) Laying : Drink while young for the fruitiness or lay for a dozen-or-so years to allow the more gamey and spicy notes to develop.
