Lucien Jacob Savigny-Lés-Beaune 1er Cru Les Vergelesses 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. Clean, refreshing and nicely balanced. Soft fruit flavours with just a hint of earthiness showing through. A little lighter in style than other years but drinking nicely now and will age consistently.
