Savigny-Lès-Beaune 1er Cru La Dominode 2014 6x75cl

Côte de Beaune
  • 75cl bottle

The Savigny-Lès-Beaune Premier Cru La Dominode is a wine with quite an intense colour. Solidly-built, lacking neither character nor strength, it is a very fruity and silky wine in the mouth with a potential for ageing.


Savigny-Lès-Beaune is a wine-growing village par excellence, to the north of and adjacent to Beaune. The vineyard faces south / south-east, east and north-east. It is situated at a height of between 220 and 360m. The chalky soils are gravely or stony, light and not very fertile. Situated on Mont-Battois, on the edge of the Beaune vineyard, facing north-east, the La Dominode 1er Cru ('Vine of the Lord') lies on a sandy, slightly pebbly soil, within the Hautes Jarrons 1er Cru vineyard.


Conditions for 2014 started well before a violent hailstorm in June hit several communes in the Mâcon and Côte d'Or with devastating effects. Summer then continued to be unsettled but a period of dry weather in September returned the available grapes to good health and the grapes were harvested from 11th September onwards resulting in expressive red wines with intense freshness and elegant tannins.


This Savigny 1er Cru is fermented in vat for 3-4 weeks, then matured in oak casks for about 15-18 months.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Casseroles/Stews
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
Perfect with roasted poultry, veal or lamb, mushroom tart or hard cheese.
