    Winemaker Pascal Marchand has coaxed a succulent, elegant wine with vibrant red fruits from vines averaging 25 years old. Organic viticulture, low yields (around 35hh) and sensitive oak elevage make this a really attractive village Savigny. For drinking now to 2018.

Yield of 44 hectos per hectare.

Table de trie at reception of grapes pre and post destalking to ensure any green or spoiled grapes are eliminated. 100% destalked. Use natural yeasts only. 5 days cold maceration at 7 to 8°C looking for extra fruit. Pigeage during alcoholic fermentation (7 to 8 days). Then remontage during cuvaison. Total vinification time 4 weeks. Pressed by pneumatic press and press wine assembled from start. Transferred into new to 3 yr old 225ltr barrels. Malos completed in barrel. Racked once after malos. 16 months in oak. Assembled, fined if necessary by bentonite and filtered if needed by kieselghur. Bottled using their own equipment.
