Domaine Dubois Bernard & Fils Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru "Clos des Guettes" 2015


Domaine Dubois Bernard is a tiny domaine of 7 hectares that is based in the village of Chorey-Les Beaune. The current owner and winemaker, Jacques Dubois, is the 5th generation of his family to make wine in this small village. Jacques continues his family’s tradition of making terroir-pure wines from their small parcels around Chorey and Savigny. The domaine farms their high altitude parcels with extreme care, focusing on small yields and sustainable practices. Once in the cellar, extraction is kept to an absolute minimum, only indigenous yeasts are used, and the wines are aged and fermented in barrel. In 2009, tragedy struck the Dubois family when Jean-Luc Dubois (Jacques’ cousin) died at a very young age. Leaving behind a wife, young daughter and winery, Jacques decided to take on the responsibility of maintaining the vineyards owned by Jean-Luc so that they can be passed down to his daughter once she became of age. Until that happens, he committed himself to honoring his cousin by maintaining Jean-Luc’s winemaking legacy. The results speak for themselves, as the range of wines are terroir pure, mineral focused beauties with depth and immense clarity.

Country of Origin:

Red/Rouge (Still)

Pinot Noir

Red wines are in barrels for 15 months. Each year, 25% of new barrels for maturing wine come from the forest of Vosges and the Allier. The vinification takes three weeks with a cold pre-fermentation maceration. Only natural indigenous yeasts from their own estate were used.

Tasting note:
The body is ample and discreetly tannic and the fruit remains present. Frequently one will find an elegant hint of Morello cherry. Roundness, volume, power and balance are all here, and in just the right proportions.
