Wine notes: 2006 Domaine Fèry Savigny-lès-Beaune “Ez Connardises”
Pinot noir from Beaune, Burgundy. Plummy. Not peppery. Earthy / forest floor / mushroomy nose.
From KLWines: This single vineyard Savigny comes from Connardises, a vineyard located right at the fork in the road as you come from Beaune and turn toward Pernand Vergelesses. It is a relatively flat site, directly below Lavieres 1er Cru, with deeper soils. The vines are over 80 years old in this plot, and the result is wine with fine structure and lots of concentration. Old vines such as this also respond brilliantly to the more natural viticulture instituted by Pascal Marchand. The result is a wine with no rusticity. Instead, the very old Pinot Fin vines yield fruit that makes a wine of finesse, structure and elegance, with notes of red plums as well a some blacker fruits.
