Domaine Chenu Savigny Les Beaune Les Haut Jarrons 1er Cru (750ml)
PorkPoultryWarm Vegetable Dishes
This is a family run estate in Savigny Les Beaune, in the Cote du Beaune, Burgundy and has been operating as such for five generations. The winery is a member of the Vignerons de Nature, a society whose mandate is to cultivate and produce wines using methods that respect the environment (organic, biodynamic).
The Hauts-Jarrons 1er Cru (Jarrons meaning tree branches) is located in the middle of the slope under the Mont Battois hill heading towards Beaune. The deep and sandy soil is similar to that of the Beaune-Bressandes. Likewise, the wines are more like those from Beaune than Savigny. Very full-bodied and tannic, they have good aromas but remain closed when young. They require a few years before reaching fullness and are age worthy wines.
