TERROIRS & DESCRIPTION
The wine in this Cuvée coming from Basses Vergelesses has been withdrawn in 2009, in favour of the finer Pinots in Les Talmettes, dating from 1965 and 1966, along with Gravains (1958) and Serpentières (1997). This Cuvée consists of vineyards from some of Savignys most highly reputed, south-facing hillsides.
(pee noh nwahr)—A tricky grape to grow, Pinot Noir makes some of the best wines in the world. The prototype wine is red Burgundy from France but Oregon, California, New Zealand, and parts of Australia also produce good Pinot Noir. The wine is lighter in color than Cabernet or Merlot with relatively high alcohol, medium-to-high acidity, and medium-to-low tannin. Its flavors and aromas can be very fruity or earthy and woodsy, depending on how it is grown. It is rarely blended with other grapes.
