"Supple and feminine wine with a ruby colour. Elegant nose of small red berries and flowers possibly suggesting roses and spices. On the palate, the wine offers a ravishing and subtile intensity of blackurrant and raspberry aromas lingering on spicy notes. The mouth remains supple, the silky tannins contributing to its delicate finesse."
Savigny les Beaunes,2014, Clos des Godeaux Drouhin
- BIODYNAMIC Pinot Noir Vinification Harvesting: by hand, in small open crates in order to preserve the integrity of the fruit. Sorting of the grapes: in the vineyard and at the cuverie (winery) if necessary. Maceration: - Maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks - Indigenous yeasts - Maceration and fermentation temperatures under total control Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance to a wine but should never be detrimental to its finesse and typical character. Ageing Type: in barrels (20% in new oak). Length: 14 to 18 months. Origin of the wood: French oak forests (Tronçay in particular). Weathering of the wood: Joseph Drouhin insists on total control of the weathering for a period of 3 years, one of the contributing elements to the elegance of the wine.
