Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
90-93 WA / 90-92 VM
Planted in 1962 and 1963, ”Les Fournaux" refers to an oven used for melting ore and alludes to open-pit mining that occurs in the area. The pebbly, higher slopes here give way to deeper soils as they descend in elevation.
On the day of my visit, the 2019 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Fournaux was one of the few comparatively reserved wines in a demonstrative portfolio, unwinding in the glass with scents of spicy berry fruit and loamy soil. Medium-bodied, bright and lively, Chisa Bize attributes its notable freshness and vivacity to the fact that it was picked in the morning, before 10 a.m.—William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
