Product Description

This fine 1er Cru lies on the Pernand Vergelesses side of the village and probably earned its name (place of the ovens) because the site once housed the village's stoves. This is a low lying vineyard with an easterly exposure, and the deep 'potter's clay' soils combine well with the Domaine's 60+ year old vines to produce multifaceted, flavoursome red Burgundies. This was showing impressive energy and muscle for the vintage when we tasted it at the Domaine last year; there was great purity of red fruit compote flavours, with a lick of spice at the back, before an eloquent, savoury finish. Always a wine that rewards cellaring and the depth and fine structure here suggest that the 2011 will do just that. 
 
"A more deeply pitched and notably earthier nose of fresh red currant and again, plenty of Savigny style earth character that is also reflected by the firm, intense and relatively powerful flavors. There is solid depth and length on the moderately austere and mildly rustic finish and overall, this is a classic Fourneaux that should reward 6 to 8 years of cellar time." 
89 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
