Located in the small and pretty village of Echevronne, Domaine Lucien Jacob produces this lovely Pinot Noir in the Savigny-lès-Beaune area, which is one of the Burgundy’s more prolific appellations. The Pinot Noirs from this region are similar in style to the reds of Beaune, being neither as elegant as Volnay nor as powerful as Pommard, yet generally reliable and good value for money
🍾 Domaine Lucien Jacob Sauvigny Vergelesses 1er Cru, 2016
🍇 💯 Pinot Noir
🍷 Elegant and restrainted, with aromas 👃🏻 of black cherries, clay, underwood. On the palate 💋 a medium (+) acidity balanced by a round and soft mouthfeel; again black cherries, strawberries jam, cedar wood and earthy notes as mushrooms and forest floor.
A wine that’s showing beautifully now, but still has a few years ahead for ageing and getting even more complex.
