Domaine Tawse Les Vergelesses 1er Cru 2015

56.00

While few would think of Savigny les Beaune for the distinction of its white wines, there is a premier cru parcel from the village that does infact consistently produce Chardonnay : Les Vergelesses. Not to be confused with its namesake premier cru from Pernand-Vergelesses or Ile des Vergelesses, sandwiched in the middle of the two and also of Pernand, Savigny’s Vergelesses is at the top of the slope as it begins to bend toward the south and toward Savigny les Beaune. A site composed of sandy marl and limestone, it makes for minerally wines even in warm vintages, and manages to create the best of both worlds : richness of fruit alongside freshness and mineral tension. The whites produced from this site are of exceptional value and age exceptionally well, so stash a few bottles away and prepare yourself to discover the greatness of aged white Burgundy !
