Domaine ARNOUX Savigny-les-Beaune "Les Pimentiers" 2016

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: A deep dress. On the nose, the bouquet is elegant, quite powerful, marked by a dominant cherry-currant-raspberry evolving towards strawberry and undergrowth after a few years of care. Supple, discreetly tannic, this Savigny presents a structured ensemble in a rather feminine style.

About the winery: The Domaine Arnoux estate is comprised of 20ha of vineyards in the villages of Beaune, Chorey, Savigny, Pernand-Vergelesse, Aloxe-Corton and Corton Grand Cru, producing approximatively 8,000 cases a year. Committed to the land and vines, Pascal tirelessly works the soil multiple times a year. Each fall, winter and spring, tilling is performed for aeration and in May, the base of each vine is hoed by hand to remove the superficial roots. In the winery, Pascal favors freshness over big structure. With his father as a cooper, Pascal became an expert in barrel selection, though there is very little new oak in the cellar. As a result, the wines reflect the delicate and floral aromas of their terroir, with only subtle influences from oak.
