Domaine Camus-Bruchon, 2016 Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Les Pimentiers
Soil & Vineyard: Planted in 1929. Clay and limestone soils mixed with some sand.
100% de-stemmed fruit with 3 day cold maceration preceding 15-20 day fermentation and maceration. Aged 12-15 months in French oak barrels. 25% new oak.
A slightly more elegant and cooler nose offers up notes of spiced plum and discreet floral nuances that are trimmed in subtle oak wisps. The succulent and velvet-textured middle weight flavors possess slightly better depth on the much less rustic finale that offers solid length on the balanced finish. Lovely stuff for what this is and worth checking out. 88-90pts-Burghound
