Lucien Jacob Savigny-Lés-Beaune 1er Cru Les Peuillets 2004
The domaine is quite large, 18 hectares, and they have vines in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Beaune, Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin. Jean-Michel Jacob now runs the Domaine supported by his sister Chantal and wife Christine. The wines are fruity and elegant but Jean-Michel has changed the vinification slightly so that the wines have good depth and structure. We feel that there is an exciting future for these wines. Fruity, with soft tannins. Quite light but drinking well. Dark fruit flavours with just a hint of oak on the palate.
