Domaine dubois Savigny-les-beaune ratausse 2021
The 2021 Domaine Dubois Savigny-les-Beaune "Les Ratausses" is a red wine from the Côte de Beaune region in Burgundy, France, primarily made from Pinot Noir. This wine is noted for its red fruit notes, particularly cherry, which is a characteristic feature of the Pinot Noir grape when grown in this region. Domaine Dubois, located in Premeaux-Prissey near Nuits Saint Georges, is known for producing a range of wines across 21 appellations on 21 hectares of vines. Their production includes white and red Burgundy, Burgundy Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Nuits Saint Georges premier cru, Savigny les Beaune premier cru, and Clos de Vougeot, totaling around 100,000 bottles per year. This context provides insight into the winery's expertise and commitment to quality in their wine production. The vineyard is managed by Béatrice Dubois and her brother Raphaël, who have been at the helm since 1991. They oversee the vine cultivation in both the Côtes de Beaune and Côtes de Nuits. The Les Monts Battois vineyard, a site on the heights of Beaune-Savigny, is particularly noteworthy and has been selected as an experimental vineyard for the region, which may influence the distinctive qualities of their wines, including the Savigny-les-Beaune "Les Ratausses”.
