Wine information

The Pinot Noir comes from the Premier Cru site Les Lavières in Savigny-lès-Beaune. The municipality is located about six kilometers northwest of Beaune and, with 383 hectares, has one of the most extensive areas in this region. The Premier Cru site Les Lavières is located in the direction of Pernand-Vergelesses. The domaine owns 2.61 hectares at the core of the 17.66 hectare vineyard. The vines are around 50 years old and face south-southeast on soil that is a mixture of sandstone, sand and marl with ferruginous egg stone (oolite) in the upper area and reddish-brown crumbly limestone in the lower area.

The unsulphured Pinot Noir from the single vineyard Les Lavières from Savigny-lès-Beaune presents itself similar to a slightly sulphured wine with notes of ripe crushed wild berries, especially wild raspberries. Besides a slightly lactic note, the Sans Soufre offers a restrained sweetish yeasty component, as it is often felt in wines.


On the palate, the Premier Cru is more reserved than the sulphured wine. It initially appears similarly soft and warm with ripe raspberry and strawberry fruit, but shows a little more acidity from the start. Here, too, the time factor plays a decisive role. Because with air, the Sans Soufre also becomes more powerful and tannic, and the earthy components get a different emphasis. Contrary to popular belief that wines without added sulfur present themselves as more open by default (and the Île de Vergelesses does), this is not the case here. With this pair, the Sans Soufre simply needs a little more time.
