2020 Domaine Chandon de Briailles Les Lavieres (Sans Soufre) Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru, France
No sulfur cuvee of the famous Lavieres!
Mid-slope and predominantly limestone. Lavières comes from the word “lave” which in this case has no volcanic reference, but was the term used in the past to describe the flat limestone tiles used to cover the roofs. In fact, these famous stones are found here in the sub-soil. The vines are more than fifty years-old and are situated in the finest part of the appellation. Fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in barrel for 18 months, 10% new oak.
