Savigny Lès Beaune, La Dominode, 1er Cru, 2021

5 cases
Equiv. £60.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Lovely depth of fruit here with complex savoury notes and plenty of salty refreshment. This is a fantastic Dominode, with a luminous intensity with really impressive length and persistence but no sense of force. Where once this cuvée offered solid power, this is now impressively airien and transparent. Quite simply this cuvée is getting finer and finer. Just 20%-30% whole bunch in 2021 as the ancient vines produce small clusters with slightly more elevated pHs than the Clair’s younger plots. Arthur and Edouard have been adapting their approach to this cuvée over the last couple of vintages, by lowering the whole bunch percentages and extracting more gently. A legendary Savigny parcel of extremely old vines many of which were planted back in 1902.
