A fine wine, elegant with delicious brioche flavours. A wonderful example from the cold and red terroir of Savigny-lès-Beaune. More info

Domaine Génot Boulanger has 22 hectares of vines that are spread throughout the Burgundy wine region and are beautiful and bountiful. The wines produced there are beautifully structured and well balanced.
This Savigny-lès-Beaune, made from old vines, is created by blending grapes from three plots of land. One is at the bottom of the slope (Les Saucours), the other is in the middle of the slope (Les Gollardes) and the final one is at the top of the slope (Les Goudelettes). This blend produces a typical and ideal Savigny-lès-Beaune marked by a certain delicacy as well as a fine bitter and mineral tension.
To create this cuvée, the estate aged the wine for 12 months in barrels before spending six months in vats; a step that allows the wine to gain tension and balance. Tasting the wine reveals a pure Chardonnay that oozes notes of lemon, brioche and other citrus fruits. With wonderful delicacy and minerality, it pairs beautifully with delicious dishes such as a carrot gratin.

Savigny-lès-Beaune Vieilles vignes Génot-Boulanger (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Plateau de charcuterie, gratins de carottes, Rougail saucisses.
