The Paradis

Savigny-Lès-Beaune 1er Cru "Les Verglesses"

The grapes are harvested by hand and then directly pressed in a pneumatic press. Alcoholic fermentation takes place entirely in French oak barrels. The ageing lasts 13 months.

An east-facing parcel situated mid slope. Very stony, shallow, clay soil.

Les Vergelesses: This name relates to the proximity of an old Roman road running « from Beaune to Vergy ». The name is made up of two words: Vergy and lesse (up there). This may refer to the fact that the parcels border the road which climbs « up there », in Vergy…

A pale gold hue. A very elegant and liverly nose with fruity and floral aromas. The palate is soft and pleasant. The medium of the palate is frank and balanced, nice minerality, a lively and salivating acidity, all hints of toasted nuances at the end of the mouth.

To taste with an aperitif, shellfish, fish, grilled and roasted white meats.
