Savigny Les Beaune - Les Peuillets - Domaine Parigot - Burgundy - France
Deep cherry colour with an opulent nose of blackcurrants, cherries and raspberry together with a hints of violets. On the palate it is an ample and rounded wine with hints of morello cherry. Lovely delicacy and a long finish.
Roast beef, steak, pate and crispy roasted chicken.
Alexandre is the 3rd generation of the Parigot family to run this domaine. The estate was created in 1950 when Georges Parigot bought his first vineyard and his first tractor. It was due to his dedication to producing quality wines he was able to expand the estate by purchasing his first vineyard in the much sought after Pommard appellation.
In 1968 Georges' son Regis joined him and continuing their commitment to making the best wines they could these two were able to buy land in some of the best vineyards in the Cotes d'Or namely Pommard "Les Vignots", Pommard "Les Charmots" and Beaune 1er Cru "Les Greves".
It was in the early 1980's that Regis Parigot moved the estate to a purpose build winery which provides optimum conditions and allowing the continued quest for excellence. This was reflected in the many good press reviews and various awards earned both in France, the UK and elsewhere around the world.
